Jazz musician Billy Tipton developed a reputable career in the mid-twentieth century. After his death, when it was revealed that he was assigned female at birth, Tipton’s story was reframed as an ambitious woman passing as a man in pursuit of a music career. This genre-defying documentary seeks to correct that misrepresentation by collaborating with trans artists who celebrate Tipton’s story as a musician living according to his own terms, painting a portrait of a trans culture icon.
