More news for this fine first day of Pride month! Oscilloscope Laboratories is set to release the documentary No Ordinary Man in theaters on July 16.
Directed by Aisling Chin-Yee and Chase Joynt, the docu spotlights trans culture icon Billy Tipton, an American jazz musician who developed a reputable touring and recording career in the mid-twentieth century, along with his band The Billy Tipton Trio.
After his death in the late ’80s, it was revealed that Tipton was assigned female at birth, and his life was swiftly reframed as the story of an ambitious woman passing as a man in pursuit of a music career. The genre-bending docu seeks to correct that misrepresentation by collaborating with trans artists. As they collectively celebrate Tipton’s story as a musician living his life according to his own terms, they paint a portrait of the cultural icon.
The film features leading voices and breakout stars in the trans community, including Marquise Vilsón, Scott Turner Schofield, Susan Stryker, C. Riley Snorton, and Thomas Page McBee, among others.

In addition, it’s time to say goodbye to Netflix‘s Peabody Award-nominated family comedy Atypical which will debut its fourth and final season on July 9.
Created by Robia Rashid we revisit Sam Gardner (Keir Gilchrist), a young man on the autism spectrum looking for love and independence. In the fourth and final season, each character faces a challenge they never anticipated and Sam sets his sights on a nearly impossible goal.
The series also stars Brigette Lundy-Paine, Nik Dodani, Fivel Stewart, Amy Okuda, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Michael Rapaport, Jenna Boyd, Graham Rogers, Tal Anderson, Domonique Brown, Naomi Rubin, and Kimia Behpoornia. Sara Gilbert is set to return as guest star.
Rashad serves as showrunner and executive produces alongside Mary Rohlich and Seth Gordon. Atypical is produced by Sony Pictures Television in association with Exhibit A and Weird Brain Inc.
