Yeah, I watched it a couple of months ago. I watched the first 15 minutes of it and thought it would be awful, so I turned it off. A couple of nights later, I got bored and decided to watch the rest of it. Yeah, it was predictable, cheezy, and a little manipulative. But I found it really moving, and wound up really liking it despite its shortcomings.

I saw this movie for the first time last week. I thought the movie as a whole was cute. I didn't love it, but I liked it. Of course anybody that comes from an ultra-religous family can relate to the struggle that the Mormon went through, but I just thought that the movie as a whole was a bit much... But I am a sucker for a bad movie and as soon as I finished watching it, I started it from the beginning and I watched it again!

Latter Days was a movie that was given to me by a friend and the first time I watched it I LOVED it.

Hi-

I just wanted to say I ran into your blog through dudetube and wanted to say how much I like it. I like all the photos, the about living a gay or straight life, but also religion conflicting all of this. I can relate to all aspects. All of my friends and parents know me as straight, I am actually gay/bi, have met up with a few guys, but never done anything since religion conflicts when it comes to sex before marriage and the idea of not doing what God wants. I am glad to see someone who is in the same boat like I am.

I also like the fact that you are a teacher, I plan on becoming a Spanish or English teacher after college. I am an English/Communications major with a Spanish minor and want to pursue a masters degree in Education. I like to read other teacher's blogs to read about their experiences in the classroom. I am a tutor for minority students right now at a high school.

I am looking forward to getting to know more about you and would love to chat!

Latter Days was a great movie. I've watched it many times, despite its shortcomings. For me the movie ended up being the catalyst to push me out of the closet. It meant a lot to me to say the least
