I sat down with actor, George Unda, from the hit web series, Where the Bears Are, to discuss his role as Detective Martinez and being a queer person of color within the larger bear community on the show. Other queer people of color who have appeared on the show include: Margaret Cho, Ray Singh, Karamo Brown, Bruce Daniels, Piankhi Iknaton, and Dylan Hafertepen. Unda also talks about memes, Guillermo Diaz (of Scandal), and much more.
Where the Bears Are is a comedy-mystery web series, which premiered in 2012. The series was created, written by and stars Rick Copp, Joe Dietl and Ben Zook. Currently, the series has three seasons. Unda became a cast member during the second season. As Detective Martinez, he works with Detective Chad Winters (Chad Sanders) as his partner.
The show has been described as a cross between The Golden Girls and Murder, She Wrote.
