“I’m just a human. I’m just a boy. Please consider my rights when you make your decision.”
A Boy Named Gavin is an animated documentary about 18-year old transgender rights activist Gavin Grimm. In 2014, Gavin started using the boys’ bathroom in school – an act that created an uproar in the community. His home town has since become the centre of the national debate over how public schools should accommodate transgender students. This clever films provides a moving accompaniment to his rousing speech demanding his rights.
