Transgender 6-year-old wins right to use girls’ bathroom at school

The Fountain-Fort Carson School District discriminated against transgender first grader Coy Mathis when it barred her from using the girls’ bathroom because of her gender identity, according to a ruling from the Colorado Civil Rights Division.

The ruling is the first in the nation to hold that transgender students must be allowed to use bathrooms that correspond to their gender identity, and a precedent-setting victory for transgender rights, advocates say.

“This ruling sends a loud and clear message that transgender students may not be targeted for discrimination and that they must be treated equally in school,” said Transgender Legal Defense & Education Fund executive director Michael Silverman in a statement. “It is a victory for Coy and a triumph for fairness.”
