Yes I Am - The Ric Weiland Story

61 mins


Ric Weiland was one of the first employees at Microsoft and 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 more than 20 million 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. Yes I Am - The Ric Weiland Story speaks to Weiland’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.
