Gender and sexuality can be fluid, and today transgender issues are altering the nature of day-to-day interactions. Newscasting legend Katie Couric takes us on a journey to discover the dynamics of gender in our world, and promotes understanding the personal and the political issues behind the headlines. Gender Revolution includes interviews with activists, doctors, families and individuals, and highlights Virginia native Gavin Grimm, a transgender student whose case is currently in the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals.

Post-film conversation with special guests Gavin Grimm and Bill Farrar (Director of Public Policy and Communications, ACLU of Virginia), moderated by Bethany Coston (Assistant Professor of Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies at VCU).
