Posted on Categories queerguru.tvLabels , , , ,

The Mathis are a remarkable family whose courage and determination rarely faltered when they supported their youngest child Coy who started transitioning from male to female in kindergarten after it was clear that Coy felt he was a girl.  Growing Up Coy documents the family’s fight for her right to use the girls’ bathroom in a landmark civil rights case that prompted a nationwide debate. 

On the eve of the movie being released for global streaming to over 190 countries on Netflix (it is already available on Itunes) director Eric Juhola talked to queerguru at PTV via Facetime about just how important Coy Mathis’s touching story really is.

30 year Brit Freddy McConnell always wanted to be a parent and the fact that he is a transman was never going to stop him. He entrusted his friend  Filmmaker Jeanie Finlay with the task of filming his journey in such a non-sensationalised way so that he could share all the trials and tribulations of him giving birth.

On the eve of this excellent heart-touching documentary Seahorse: The Dad Who Gave Birth getting a VOD/DVD release in the US on 6/16, Queerguru tracked down Freddy to where he and baby Jack are in lockdown in their small hometown on the British coast.  https://seahorsefilm.com/
