For decades, the life of American jazz musician Billy Tipton was framed as the story of an ambitious woman passing as a man in pursuit of a music career. No Ordinary Man seeks to correct that misrepresentation and celebrate a trans culture icon.

MUBI's take

Billy Tipton! Maybe you know the name from the inspirational roll call of Le Tigre’s riot grrl classic, “Hot Topic.” With an array of documentary methods, No Ordinary Man expands that celebratory shout-out to explore the legacy of the jazz virtuoso, a luminary in the trans-masculine community.
