No Ordinary Man

LGBTQ Music Feature Film Documentary

The legacy of Billy Tipton, a 20th-century American jazz musician and trans icon, is brought to life by a diverse group of contemporary trans artists. Gaining fame throughout the United States in the ‘40s and ’50s, Tipton’s trans identity was not known until after his death in 1989. This documentary maps out Tipton’s undeniable legacy while also examining the disgraceful media scrutiny his family endured after his death.
