Special Presentation

No Ordinary Man
No Ordinary Man documents the life of American Jazz musician Billy Tipton whose story, for decades since his death, was framed as an ambitious woman passing as a man in pursuit of a music career. In No Ordinary Man, Tipton’s story is re-imagined and performed by trans artists as they collectively paint a portrait of an unlikely hero. Together, the filmmakers join Tipton’s son Billy Jr. to reckon with a complicated and contested legacy: how do you tell the story of someone who was hiding in plain sight yet desperate to be seen? No Ordinary Man features leading voices in the trans community, including Marquise Vilsón, Scott Turner Schofield, Susan Stryker, C.Riley Snorton, and Thomas Page McBee, among others.

Available to stream from 12:01AM, September 17th to 11:59PM, September 24th.
Ticketholders have 24 hours to complete the stream once they start a particular presentation.
