Overview

Transgender teen Gavin Grimm received permission to use the boys’ bathroom at his Gloucester, Virginia high school and happily did so without incident for seven weeks. But some parents soon caught wind and became outraged. The tumult that ensued divided a town, brought national attention to a little-known civil rights issue and thrust Grimm into the spotlight as a reluctant advocate for the transgender community. Gavin Grimm vs. is the story of diversity and inclusion in an age of changing gender roles, propelled by a boy who is simply fighting for a brighter future.
