Katie Couric’s ‘Gender Revolution’ to Stream for Free Starting on Valentine’s Day (Exclusive)

National Geographic doc will be available online for one week

Don’t fret, cord-cutters, you too can watch Katie Couric’s “Gender Revolution” documentary — and for free — but you’re on the clock.

National Geographic will make the two-hour doc available to stream, beginning tomorrow, for one week, TheWrap has exclusively learned. “Gender Revolution: A Journey With Katie Couric” can soon be found 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 cable channel will also air a special encore of the documentary tonight at 9/8c. “Gender Revolution” debuted on Nat Geo last Monday.

“Gender Revolution” explores the rapidly evolving complexities of gender — from the moment we are born through our twilight years. To better understand the complex social issue, Couric crisscrossed the U.S. to talk with scientists, psychologists, activists, authors and families to learn more about the role of genetics, brain chemistry and modern culture on gender fluidity.

Her 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. Yes, that’s who Laverne Cox shouted out last night at the Grammys.

“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,” host and executive producer Couric told us. “National Geographic is helping to push that goal forward by making it so broadly available to audiences.”
