*June 4th: presented in presence of Aisling Chin-Yee*

On the surface, No Ordinary Man is a portrait of the little-known career of trans jazz musician Billy Tipton. However, the film’s scope expands far beyond ordinary biography as it works to link present identity questions with ignored stories of the past. Aisling Chin-Yee and Chayse Joynt skillfully dismantle the sensationalist approaches that have so far defined Tipton’s legacy, instead choosing to focus on her true impact: her status as a go-to role model in the trans community.
