To honor a story that has meant so much to so many people
To keep Ennis and Jack present in mind and heart
To share the story of Brokeback Mountain with others
To share the experience of this story with each other
To make homophobia and hatred only a memory
The Back To Brokeback Goals:
Keep the story alive
Return to Brokeback Mountain often
Read the original story
Watch the film version
Discuss Brokeback with friends and family, colleagues and strangers
Meet other Brokeback fans online and in person
Give the story as a gift
Create space in our world for all people to love
Support causes which help end homophobia
Write about your Brokeback experience
Have a Brokeback weekend with friends - DVD, food, etc.
More ideas coming soon! I've been inundated!
The Back To Brokeback Timeline:
Whenever you can do it
Daily, weekly, monthly, every few months
In February, the month of love, the time of awards; Ennis and Jack in a warm cabin in the mountains
In May, early summer, the DVD release; when Ennis and Jack first went to Brokeback Mountain, and when they last met.
In August, late summer; when they came down from the mountain, and also when they couldn't meet.
In November, early winter, the month before the film opened; when they planned to meet again.
