7:12 am
as we know, is very aware of not wanting to do anything that is seen as an escalation in this fight. george? >> thanks for clearing that up. mary bruce, thanks very much. we turn to the urgent river rescue in virginia after dangerous rushing currents led people into trouble. will reeve is tracking the very latest for us. >> reporter: this morning, officials searching for two women who disappeared after they were swept over a waterfall in virginia. >> we have ten persons that have been brought to the bank. reportedly two still in the water. >> reporter: kayaks, paddleboards and floats seen churning in the rapids after rescuers say they went over a 12-foot waterfall. officials say ten other people made it safely to shore. two women in their 20s haven't been found and crews were forced to suspend the search until this morning. >> a lot of debris from the rafts are starting to float by here. no swimmers in the water. >> reporter: it's been a perilous holiday weekend for the james river, running two to three times its normal level after heavy rains. watch as a bystander races to reach this couple struggling to keep up with the rushing

big screen and audiences showed out, bringing in the highest initial gross for a noncomic book movie since december 2019 and bringing with it a group that's been hesitant to return to theaters. >> a lot of older audiences over 35 came and they have for the past two years been cautious about coming to the theater. the younger audiences have been more daring about it. >> so we've seen a lot of sequels in recent years and it's often hard to capture that nostalgia and get audiences excited. this one did it. michael, i heard you screamed, you yelled, you cried. you were so excited. >> i did it all. >> were you born when the first one game out, janai? >> i wasn't going to bring it up. i was not born when the first one came out. >> mandatory watching, janai. you got yourself an assignment for the afternoon. a lot more coming up on "gma" including juju chang's exclusive interview with lia

7:32 am
juju chang has the story. >> reporter: lia thomas says there are two major aspects of her identity, being an elite swimmer and being trans. yet it's her success as a trans athlete that landed her smack in the culture world over trans rights and breaking her silence as people try to balance the score values of inclusion versus fairness. she's the swimmer who created shock waves across the country. 23-year-old lia thomas. >> lia thomas pulling away. >> reporter: the upenn swimmer making news after she won a division 1 title. but her achievements on the women's swim team igniting fierce debate over fairness in women's sports. >> it is just not fair. >> when it comes to competition it's just not a fair fight. >> reporter: throughout the controversy thomas has largely remained quiet until now. >> i knew there would be scrutiny against me if i competed as a woman. i was prepared for that, but i also don't need anybody's permission to be myself and to
7:33 am
do the sport that i love. >> reporter: assigned male at birth thomas grew up in austin, texas, where she fell in love with swimming when she was just 4. but as she grew she said she felt increasingly disconnected to her body. >> i didn't feel like i was a boy. i was, like, this isn't me. this isn't who i am. >> reporter: thomas earned a spot at her ivy league dream school, upenn on the men's team but by her sophomore year her gender dysphoria left her depressed and suicidal. >> i was barely going to classes. i could barely get out of bed and i said i can't live like this anymore. i want to be able to do things i enjoy. >> even if it might cost me my swimming career? >> yeah, that's part of what kept me from transitioning for so long. i wasn't sure if i could continue swimming and doing the sport i love. >> reporter: thomas began hrt, hormone replacement therapy, in
7:34 am
may of her sophomore year, 2019. >> the mental and emotional changes happened very quickly. i was feeling a lot better mentally. i was less depressed and i lost muscle mass and i became a lot weaker and a lot slower in the water. >> reporter: after following ncaa guidelines of a year of hormone therapy to change gender categories she started her senior year on the women's team but her success in the water was met with outrage leading up to the ncaa championships. her critics say she jumped in rankings between the men's and women's team. >> some look at the data and suggest that you're enjoying a competitive advantage. what do you say to that? >> there's a lot of factors that go into a race and how well you do, and the biggest change for me is that i'm happy and sophomore year when i had my best times competing with the men, i was miserable and so
7:35 am
having that be lifted is incredibly relieving and allows me to put my all into training, into racing. transpeople don't transition for athletics. we transition to be happy and authentic and our true selves. transitioning to get an advantage is not something that ever factors into our decisions. >> you didn't transition to win more medals? >> no. >> thomas quickly became a lightning rod. 16 of her own teammates and some of their parents wrote anonymous letters arguing thomas posed a threat to women's sports. the women who signed the letter anonymously said that they absolutely supported your right to transition but they simply think it's unfair for you to compete against cisgendered women. >> you can't go halfway and be, like, i support transwomen and
7:36 am
transpeople, but only to a certain point. if you support transwomen as women and they've met all the ncaa requirements, then i don't know if you can really say something like that. transwomen are not a threat to women's sports. >> reporter: while the scince on transgender athletes is new and evolving, some medical experts say the effects of higher testosterone during male puberty may never be fully erased. what are the physical aspects that transwomen may not be able to roll back with hormone therapy. >> obviously issues related to body size, airway size, hand size, foot size, perhaps bone density and so forth, but the main thing is just the interactions of exercise training and skeletal muscle. >> are you saying that years of hormone therapy cannot put transwomen in a place to compete with cisgendered women? >> i think the evidence so far would suggest a period of two, three, four years is probably insufficient.
7:37 am
>> there is this concept of the legacy effects of testosterone and that that can't ever be zero. should that eliminate or disqualify transgender women? >> i'm not a medical expert but there is a lot of variation among cis female athletes. there's cis women who are very tall and very muscular and have more testosterone than another cis woman. and should that then also disqualify them? >> reporter: in january the ncaa updated its transgender athlete eligibility guidelines saying each sport's governing body could make its own rules, saying it wouldn't impose them
7:38 am
midseason clearing her to compete at the ncaas. >> it was an incredible experience to fulfill that personal goal as well as competing as my authentic self was such an amazing experience to have these things that i've been working towards for so long all come together. >> are there olympics in your future? >> it's been a goal of mine to go to the olympic trials for a very long time and i would love to see that through. >> reporter: now her college swimming career is over. lia just graduated from upenn and is getting ready for law school, perhaps a future career as a civil rights lawyer advocating for transrights. george? >> juju, did lia ever think about quiting? >> absolutely. she said she was so depressed when she transitioned, she thought she gave it up even if it cost her swimming career. critics said if you stop swimming no one would have a problem. her response is people are going to have a problem with me no matter what i do so i don't want to be forced to give up my identity as a swimmer. >> quite a woman. see more of juju's interview on espn, tonight on "nightline." cecelia? coming up, we've got the

the trial has had millions of eyeballs and arm chair analysts on social media, especially on tiktok, all surrounding one of the biggest and most wrenching and high-profile celebrity trials in recent memory. guys? >> it certainly has. okay, will, let's bring in chief legal analyst dan abrams. i'll ask you to put your jury crystal ball or pull it out for us. how long do you think the jury goes? >> i would have been shocked if the jury had come back on friday when they got the case initially. they deliberated tore a couple of hours. why? in a high-profile case like this the jurors know the world is watching and they want to be careful to be seen as a jury that is being deliberative and thoughtful and careful. so with that said, i think it is certainly possible it could come back at the end of the day today. but we don't know if there's going to be a divide on that jury. if there is a split it could certainly take longer. >> what exactly are the jurors evaluating and how do you feel like they'll play out.
7:45 am
>> with regard to the allegations that johnny depp is making, three questions that the jurors are having to answer and they're all related to this "washington post" article and it's basically line by line is this defamatory? is this one false? the closest call as far as i'm concerned is a headline that "the washington post" had which referred to her as a victim of sexual violence. why is that one different? because depp's team would argue that when it came to the specific claim of sexual violence, they didn't prove it. amber heard says i didn' even write that headline. johnny depp's team responds but, yes, you tweeted it out and as a result you publish the it so there are all sorts of interesting questions surrounding that particular line which i think could be the trickiest one for the jury. >> amber heard has a countersuit as well. from what you've been saying it's likely they both lose. but what if they both win? >> that's something i was thinking about earlier. it is actually possible that they could both win.
7:46 am
this is how. if the jurors believe that johnny depp was defamed on the comment about sexual violence but that the rest of it was true, then they could say that the countersuit which is against johnny depp's lawyer basically calling it a hoax saying amber heard and her friends got together and made this stuff up, you could actually believe both things are true. wouldn't that be unbelievable if somehow they both ended up winning? now, i think it's very unlikely. i think it's much more likely they both end up losing but it's not impossible they both could end up winning their lawsuits. >> the whole thing has been unbelievable. >> it has, and the fact that the world has become so obsessed with this is really fascinating. >> stay tuned. >> dan, thank you. coming up next amy is bringing in a special correspondent for the queen's jubilee. guess who. jubilee. guess who.

8:13 am
cases associated with a very common virus called adenovirus can cause respiratory illness, gastrointestinal illness seen in about 35% of the u.s. pediatric hepatitis indicates, but we know what it isn't. this is not related to the covid vaccine. the majority of the cases are in children under 5 who are not eligible. it's not related to the other hepatitis vaccines and most importantly it's not related to that strawberry-linked hepatitis a, not related to that. >> how dangerous is it? >> unfortunately, it started out as just mild cases but as the number grew, unfortunately, the severe cases grew worldwide. they're seeing about 6% of these cases requiring liver transplantation and unfortunately a 1% fatality rate right now. but right now at this point the world health organization calling the risk of severe illness to be moderate. that's not low. so, again, it's about awareness and really a call to action to health professionals and parents alike to be aware. >> what should parents look out for? >> i think there are a long list of symptoms, very common.

8:17 am
royal contributor robert jobson. robert, we know the queen is 96 years old. that would mean prince charles has had quite some time to prepare to take over. is he ready? >> i think he's never been more ready. actual probably since 2016 when the queen stopped traveling internationally, there's been like almost like a dual monarchy. he supportqueen in eve papers and mhe ministers so almost uanahy at the moment. >> how will he be received by the people and especially with his wife camilla? >> difficult to know. i think camilla is a bit of an acquired taste for some but i think she will do a great job. the prince of wales himself will be very well received. he's somebody who has grown more and more into the role and has grown more popular. >> the royal family has experienced quite a bit of, well, bad press, controversy, drama, you name it. it's happened.
8:18 am
how has the queen handled it all and is she likely to get a break from all of it? has it all erupted and now calmed down? >> it keeps the media busy and the queen busy. so i think that she is somebody who steps to rise above things. if she worried about every scandal that hit the royal family, she would be a nervous wreck. so she rises above it and lets others deal wit and takes things in a more pragmatic way. >> now, though, she doesn't have the love of her life prince philip by her side. how has that changed how she's been able to handle and react to some of this? >> it's difficult to say. they were together 70 years and, look, it must be devastating for her. she's not only lost him, but lost her friends around, some of her friends in her generation have died as well and i'm sure it's difficult at 96 to not have anyone to turn to in your own circle. >> can't be easy. all eyes will be on which members of the royal family show up at which events, which ones can and cannot whether they're active royals or not.
8:19 am
any of this drama surrounding even harry and meghan and prince andrew, will it overshadow the jubilee in any way? >> i certainly hope not. here we're focused on her majesty the queen and when she is going to appear. i think she will be at the thanksgiving service and on the balcony. we won't see her at derby but the british tabloids will focus on whether harry and meghan show. i think they will play a background role, not be really out there at the moment and really i think that's a tabloid story and should be focused on the good news, her majesty's incredibly long reign. >> what about her mobility issues? you mentioned a few of the events we think we'll see her at but won't be able to attend all of them. >> she certainly won't be able to attend all of them. she's had mobility issues and had this mobility scooter we've seen her driving in. look, they have to gauge it on the day. how does she feel on the day, but she's a trouper. she'll always turn out when she's really necessary to be there and the service of thanksgiving will be something
8:20 am
that is very important to her as a woman of faith, devout faith and she will be there and they'll have a prayer for prince philip i'm sure. i'm sure and when the big stage is set we'll see her take center stage on that balcony when the cheers will be ringing out. >> we're all looking forward to that moment very much so. robert jobson, thank you so much. we appreciate it. >> reporter: michael, back to you. >> thank you, amy. now let's go to ginger. >> we will be flirting with those record highs from new york city through new jersey, westchester, pennsylvania. but look what they were doing at killington, still skiing through june 4th so through this weekend, they were 82 yesterday. today short of 80 degrees as record highs or potential for them, we'll get close, settle in. philadelphia, if they make it to 97 that ties a record. here in new york we have 96. pittsburgh, 91 there too. the heat does not last forever. if you need heat today is the day because by tomorrow that front slides back. look at new york city, just shy of 70. it's going to feel a whole lot different.

♪ with all my favorite colors ♪ we're back with the new book "secret city," the hidden history of gay washington. it is an epic account of the contributions, compromises and sacrifices gay americans made as they tried to serve their country through the 20th century. it's already getting rave reviews. "the new york times" calls it rewarding in the extreme.
8:38 am
author james kirchick joins us now. as i said earlier, i thought this was an incredible book. as soon as i read it -- people have to understand it's not just gay history. it's american history. >> that's why i wrote it. i'm fascinated in american history, particularly cold war. in all these books i was reading whether presidential biographies or books about mccarthyism or books about the reagan issue, there was a background issue lurking in the shadows of homosexuality or gay people somehow involved in these stories as advisers or friends, but no one had ever really put it all together. >> most people today may not understand that at the time being gay was considered a serious national security threat. >> it was. starts around world war ii that being gay goes from being a sin to a national security threat and the fear is that gay people would be more blackmailed. they would be more vulnerable to blackmail because this was the worst possible secret you could have.
8:39 am
it was so shameful. it was condemned by the medical community and criminalized across the country. it was religiously condemned as a sin. and so gay people, you could even say they were feared more than communists. >> there's so many compelling characters in the book and one of the interesting things i learned is that not all of them were in the closet. >> right. well, there's one amazing character, his name is carmel who was a diplomat and one of the founding fathers of the cia who was a pretty flamboyantly openly gay person but that was very rare. i think he was able to do it because he was so loyal to his boss at the time and that they were willing to protect him and this is sort of one of the talents or skills that a lot of the gay people in my book developed because they're so vulnerable. they become the most loyal aides, the most loyal servants to people in power and yet and often doesn't help them at all. >> one other thing you get into you have the two agencies of our
8:40 am
national security, the fbi hunting down gay americans, the cia looking to use them? >> right, right, because gay people if you think about it could have been good spies and some of them were because the talents that you need as a spy were the sort of talents that gay people had to have. they had to be able to keep secrets very well. they had to wear a disguise. they had to show one face to the public but then they had another face in private and so this made them very good at espionage and in the early years of the cia, even before the cia was founded i write about some of these people who joined the oss, the precursor to the cia, some gay men and women who joined those intelligence agencies and then once the cold war begins, homosexuality almost becomes a weapon between the fbi and the cia. >> one of the most surprising things for me in the book is how this persisted even as gays participated more openly in our culture. in 1980 ronald reagan's presidential campaign, a serious threat to this campaign is an actual investigation into whether he is surrounded by homosexual men. >> one of the big scoops in my book going back to 1967 there was a gay scandal when ronald
8:41 am
reagan was governor but in 1980 sort of new allegations were brought to the attention of ben bradlee, the executive editor of "the washington post" that he was surrounded by a right wing gay cabal that was basically controlling him like a manchurian candidate. a group of republican congressmen who brought it to "the washington post." "the washington post" investigated it. they did find several gay people working for ronald reagan but the allegations that this was some sort of nefarious conspiracy didn't hold up and they ended up not polishing anything. but the story does illustrate for you the real fear that this notion of homosexuality really had over our national politics for so many years. >> what do you hope people take away from the book? >> i came away from writing this very optimistic about the power of americans to change their country for the better. i mean, if you look at the place, the status of gay people when i -- when the book starts during the new deal, the 1940s,
8:42 am
this was the most despised minority in america and to go from that place to now where we have an openly gay man running for president on a major party ticket who is now serving in the cabinet, it is just an unfathomable progression and it makes me very proud and actually optimistic to be an american. there's very little to be optimistic in our world right now, but writing this book made me very optimistic. >> "secret city" out today. fantastic book. james, thanks very much. >> thank you, george. let's go to ginger. >> america and the world is addicted to fast fashion. the average american buys 16 new items of clothing every three months. more than 2,000 pieces of clothes are thrown away every second here in the united states. so we need industrial and societal change but we can all start the conversation. so you have seen me featuring consignment pictures or repeating those blue pants i shared with janai. i have worn this dress dozens of times since i bought it in 2007 but now we got to level up. taking the remake no new clothes
