RJ has moved to Portland, and is a successful writer.

As someone who has battled some of the same self loathing these characters have endured in this trilogy, this holds a special place in my heart. All three films are fantastic, the last is one that will take you on the emotional roller coaster of the century. By now in this trilogy you already know and love the characters. The purity of the love between Christopher and R.J. Is something to be treasured. There is of course lust but love comes before lust in every sense. I haven't cried so much at a movie in many years. The acting is superb and the chemistry of the lead actors is out of this world. I highly recommend starting at the beginning of the trilogy, that way you can see how beautifully these characters are developed.
This trilogy hits home for a lot of the GLBTQ community that have come from religious upbringing.
Please give these films a chance. You will not be disappointed.
