Birth Place: Salisbury, NC, USA
VIDEO: AlphaDogs Explores the Trials and Tribulations of Independent Film Pioneer Wakefield Poole
by Robert Diamond - Mar 1, 2014

Being a pioneer in any field is at the very least daunting, but imagine if what you are doing not only deals with a taboo topic of the era, but could also earn you some time in jail? In the documentary film I Always Said Yes: The Many Lives Of Wakefield Poole audiences are given an inside look into the life of overlooked gay liberation and independent film pioneer, Wakefield Poole. Directed by Jim Tushinski and sponsored by the San Francisco Film Society, the film will screen at selected film festivals later this year and into 2014.
