“Could not be timelier…” —New York Times

“Provocative, enlightening” —OUT

“Unique insight into what anyone who dares to stand up for their rights must endure when their fight becomes public” —The Moveable Fest

GROWING UP COY is a feature-length documentary that centers around a young Colorado family who engages in a highly publicized legal battle and landmark civil rights case, as they fight for their 6-year-old transgender daughter Coy Mathis’s right to use the girls’ bathroom at her elementary school. The Mathis family’s landmark case in 2013, was the first in the United States to decide in favor of a transgender youth using the bathroom facility that corresponds with their gender identity. The film asks a universal question that any parent could face: How far would you go to fight for your child’s equal rights?
