    "I'm a transgender.  So that means I have the man parts but inside I feel more like a woman.  I was just wondering, is it okay if I go in there with you in there and change and shower and stuff?"

    In my experience, they are usually feeling too awkward (because of the social feedback they get) to say much of anything at all and it is incumbent on the rest of us to let them know they are welcome and safe. (As they are generally the ones more at risk of having violence committed against them than the other way around.)
