At only six years old, Coy Mathis is
fighting for the right to be fully recognized as a girl. Katie
Couric highlights her story, and those of two other transgender
children, Tuesday on her daytime talk show, Katie.
Coy will be joined on the show by her
parents, Jeremy and Kathryn Mathis, and Transgender Legal Defense &
Education Fund (TLDEF) Executive Director Michael Silverman.
TLDEF is representing Coy in her fight
to be recognized as a girl in school.
From the show's description: “What do
you do when your child feels like they were born in the wrong body?
On this episode of Katie, you'll hear the deeply personal stories of
three transgender children and their parents, and their journeys to
understand the psychological, physical, and social process to become
their authentic selves. Meet Coy Mathis, a transgender girl who at
only six-years-old is fighting alongside her parents for the right to
be fully recognized as a girl in school. Katie will explore how
medical advances are being used earlier and more safely to change the
biological process of puberty, and she will introduce a beautiful
woman who struggled for her father's acceptance and has an important
message about gender identity.”
