National Geographic to Make GENDER REVOLUTION: A JOURNEY WITH KATIE COURIC Available for Free, Beginning Valentine’s Day

Special Encore Also Scheduled To Air February 13 at 9/8c

WASHINGTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–National Geographic has announced it will make the two-hour documentary GENDER
REVOLUTION: A JOURNEY WITH KATIE COURIC
available to stream for
free, beginning Tuesday, Feb. 14, for one week. The stream will be
available on National Geographic’s website,
YouTube
channel
, Facebook
page
, Apple TV app and TV Everywhere mobile apps. Produced by Katie
Couric Media with National Geographic Studios and World of Wonder
Productions, the network will also air a special encore of the
documentary on Monday night, February 13 at 9/8c.

Hailed as “powerful” by Ellen Degeneres, “groundbreaking” by the
Huffington Post, and “compassionate, incisive, and informed” by the
Daily Beast, GENDER REVOLUTION: A JOURNEY WITH KATIE COURIC
explores the rapidly evolving complexities of gender — from the moment
we are born through our twilight years. To better understand this
complex social and scientific issue, Couric crisscrossed the U.S. to
talk with scientists, researchers, activists, authors and families to
learn more about the role of genetics, brain chemistry and modern
culture on gender fluidity. Her wide-ranging interviews included a
conversation with Gavin Grimm, the transgender Virginia teen whose
lawsuit seeking equal bathroom access is headed to the Supreme Court on
March 28. With discussions that range from the scientifically
enlightening to the deeply personal, Couric’s unflinching search for
truth sheds light on countless untold stories of struggle,
understanding, ignorance, hurt and love.

“I’ve always hoped this documentary would be a spark to ignite
conversations in every corner of the country around the evolving
landscape of gender,” said host and executive producer Katie Couric.
“National Geographic is helping to push that goal forward by making it
so broadly available to audiences.”

In addition, National Geographic continues to partner with Picture
Motion on the Gender Revolution Tour, allowing any high school,
college, university or nonprofit to sign up to host a free screening and
discussion. To date, more than 300 groups nationwide have signed up to
participate. The tour harnesses the momentum of the gender conversations
happening around the globe and offers an opportunity to have an informed
dialogue on one of the most complicated and evolving issues in the
current zeitgeist. Groups will also be provided with an extensive
discussion guide developed for National Geographic by Journeys in Film (link).

The documentary is also currently airing on National Geographic around
the globe in 171 countries and in 45 languages.
