Beverly Glenn-Copeland is that rare thing: a re-discovered talent who began writing music about queer experience in the 1960s, when same-sex relationships were illegal, trans lives were hidden and stigmatised, and the Civil Rights movement was just getting underway. Yet Glenn-Copeland manages to be light, funny and positive. Now in his seventies, he praises the activism of young people and beams when trans kids say that he is the trans elder they never had. He has worked on Sesame Street, as a professional children’s performer and he has played his music to full houses internationally. This documentary is a snapshot of an ongoing legacy – poignant for Glenn-Copeland having been revived in such a beautiful, life-affirming way.
