Hello all!

I'm called Viper (due to my car and truck, and their engines).

I met DavidInIndy on another board, where an invitation was made to join here.

I am from Oregon, from a huge family, married (hetero) to my hubby for almost 26 years (here in a few weeks).
I care deeply about this cause, as it has impacted our extended family in many ways, and I also teach HS here in America, and have had this issue come up over the many years I have taught.

I am typically a reader/lurker, but will find it interesting to read and share a word here and there.  This place is new to me, thus I will read quite a bit to get a feel, and since school is starting this very next week for me, I haven't much time to spend, as I'd like.

Thanks for the invite David!

Have a seat by the fire, Viper!  For good reading about the movie, I recommend The Open Forum or either of its sub-forums.  To get to know us posters and what makes us tick, just about any forum will do nicely!  8)

Hello Viper, Jen, and all you other newcomers!  Welcome!  Hello to Kelda, David, and all the folks I know and used to be in touch with much more!

The J in JC stands for Juan. I live in NYC and have been to some of the big Brokie gatherings.  This includes the Alberta trip last year, a real lifechanging event for me, like the movie was.  In fact, when I first saw the flick I was both blown away and scared s***less.  Blown away by how beautifully the incredible love story was translated onto the screen, a feat I wasn't sure could be done.  Scared because I didn't want my future to be like Ennis', due to a difficult relationship history. 

I'm a social worker and love playing volleyball, although I've been sidelined lately by a sprained ankle.  I haven't been able to participate as much in the last several months, but I want to reconnect to the degree that I am able to, so I though I'd reintroduce myself and say hey, and that I'm looking forward to getting to know people again.

Thanks,
Juan
