Patrick G. Lee (he/they) is a queer Korean American documentary filmmaker, writer, and community organizer. He’s interested in building collaborative, community-based approaches to filmmaking that reject traditional hierarchies of authority and that equip queer and trans people of color with media-making skills. Patrick has made films about Asian American coming out stories, LGBTQ self-representation, and queer Asian history. His reporting has appeared in Mother Jones, ProPublica, The Atlantic, CNN.com, and more. In 2018, Patrick helped organize KQTcon, the first national Korean queer and trans conference in the US. His favorite snack is kongjang (soy-braised black beans).
