‘Growing Up Coy’ Review: Transgender Rights Documentary Humanizes the Bathroom Debate

6 January 2017 8:15 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s easy to miss the most telling moment in “Growing Up Coy,” when six-year-old Coy Mathis catches a gentle reporter off-guard with a hug. The question that evoked such affection? “So you want to be able to use the girls’ restroom, like the other little girls?”

The documentary, directed by Eric Juhola (producer of “Broken Heart Land” and “Off The Grid: Life on the Mesa”) and coming to Netflix on January 6th, follows Coy and her family as they challenged a school district in Colorado for Coy’s right to use the girls’ bathroom as a transgender girl. The case made headlines in 2013 when the Colorado Rights Division ruled that Coy had the right to use the girls’ bathroom under the Colorado Anti-Discrimination Act. The language in the ruling went above and beyond, setting a critical early precedent for transgender student rights in a battle that continues today.
