In collaboration with the San Francisco Public Library and the Contemporary Jewish Museum, YBCA is proud to host filmmaker David Weissman to share a segment of his project, Conversations with Gay Elders.

Through a series of in-depth interviews and conversational documentaries, Weissman (The Cockettes, We Were Here) fosters a cross-generational collaboration, in which gay men in their 20s and 30s become editors to profile gay men in their 70s and 80s whose journeys of self-discovery precede the era of Stonewall and gay liberation. Conversations with Gay Elders explores how these men navigated being “different” long before there was any social or political context for a positive LGBT self-image.

YBCA will screen one conversation from the series featuring New Yorker Daniel Maloney who was 77 years old at the time of the interview. Born outside Philadelphia, Maloney was a principal dancer with Martha Graham in the 1970s. The editor of this piece is Jake Stein, who came on to this project at age 24, shortly after coming out of the closet as a gay man. (66 min, 2017, digital)

*David Weissman and Jake Stein will be present for a Q&A after the screening.
