My obsession began in September. Just after Labor Day, 2005. For years I had been holding out to watch the film first, but suddenly I had to read the story, and blog immediately, I was hooked. I began blogging feverishly, and accumulated a vast assortment of links. Volunteers joined in, and now a dozen people are working every day to bring you this guide and The Ultimate Brokeback Forum.
