The Colorado Civil Rights Division has ruled in favor of Coy Mathis, a 6-year-old transgender girl who was barred from using the girls’ bathroom at her elementary school, pictured above.
“Schools should not discriminate against their students, and we are thrilled that Coy can return to school and put this behind her,” Kathryn Mathis, Coy’s mother, said in a statement. “All we ever wanted was for Coy’s school to treat her the same as other little girls. We are extremely happy that she now will be treated equally.”
