Aaron Bear is a filmmaker from Seattle – who directed and produced an award-winning feature-length documentary released in 2016 called Finding Kim – regarded as one of the truest tellings of a transgender person’s life. His influences as a filmmaker are as varied as his interests a person, ranging from the oft-maligned to the universally lauded. His new film, Yes I am: The Ric Weiland Story, chronicles the life of the brilliant programmer and queer pioneer who was one of the earliest employees of Microsoft. It details his battle with mental health during the AIDS epidemic – it’s a stunning film with narration by Zachary Quinto, interviews with people from Ric Weiland’s life, including Bill Gates, and passages from Ric’s own writings.
We chat with Aaron about his creative process in putting the film together, the AIDS epidemic, mental health in the LGBTQ community, the legacy that Ric Weiland left behind, and the future of LGBTQ filmmaking…with host Alexander Rodriguez.
We had an absolute blast chatting with @CarsonKressley about his early career, personal life, Drag Race and CHER! Watch the entire Metrosource Minis with host Alexander Rodriguez at https://youtu.be/7cI8XoX-zas
