The film documents Leitham’s journey as she transitioned and her experiences as a transgender woman working in the music industry. The film has garnered multiple awards including being named the best documentary of Outfest 2012.

After working her way to the top and becoming one of the most well-known jazz bassists in the industry, Leitham risked it all by publicly coming out as transgender and having undergone sexual reassignment surgery.

The Jazz Brunch will feature a silent auction, performance and a dessert reception. Tickets are $65 and can be purchased at equalityutah.org.
