Keyboard Fantasies tells the story of Beverly Glenn-Copeland, a black transgender septuagenarian and musical genius who finally finds his place in the world. When Glenn receives an unexpected email in 2016 from a record collector in Japan inquiring about copies of his 1986 self-release, Keyboard Fantasies, everything changes. Now signed to a major indie label and sharing a timely message with the world, Glenn's emergence from obscurity transpires as an intimate coming-of-age story that spins the pain and suffering of prejudice into rhythm, hope and joy.
"To hear Glenn speak about his transness and what it means for him and for his music turns Keyboard Fantasies into a nourishing and mindful lesson." -B.L. Panther, The Spool
