Trailer Alert: Yes I Am: The Ric Weiland Story
From director Aaron Bear, Yes I Am tells the incredible story of Ric Weiland, one of the first employees at Microsoft who had a brilliant and creative mind.
A champion of gay rights, Weiland came out in the 1970s and used his wealth to create social change, donating millions of dollars to fund more than 60 nonprofit organizations. Those efforts to establish representation and resources for the LGBTQ+ community continue to have a profound impact today, shaping the future of equality.
Featuring voiceover from Zachary Quinto and reenactments wherein Weiland is played by actor Gil Bar-Sela, Yes I Am: The Ric Weiland Story speaks to the pioneer’s life and legacy, but also his mental struggles and personal demons, pulling back the curtain on the self-doubt and impostor-syndrome that weighed on a man who gave so much to the world around him.
