Documentary About Transgender Musician Jennifer Leitham to Screen During Womenfest and Fort Lauderdale Gay and Lesbian Film Fest

On Sept. 5 at Womenfest Key West, and on Oct. 7 at the Fort Lauderdale International Gay & Lesbian Film Festival(FLGLFF), LGBT film audiences and their allies will have the opportunity to view the award-winning documentary I Stand Corrected.

The film centers on the life of acclaimed jazz bassist Jennifer Leitham, a transgender woman who first established her musical career as John Leitham, and performed with Mel Tormé, Doc Severinsen, and many other jazz luminaries in the ’80s and ’90s.  She also recorded several well-regarded CDs such as The Southpaw.  But throughout those years, her gender identification as a female was kept hidden from the public.
