Dear Grethe, Thank you for maintaining a site with updates on what you are doing! I miss listening to you on the internet, as I was a regular listener! I even submitted information for one of your shows, the one on evangelical bigot James Dobson who fans the flame of anti-gay fear to reap donations for his "ministry"! How is law school going? I hope it is a fulfilling experience for you. My partner Wayne, who was in the military for 10 years, and I just taped a public access show today that airs in much on the state of Minnesota on a group we are" chaircouples" of called COUPLES Twin Cities. It is a social group of commited gay and lesbian couples located on the web at www.couplestc.org Thanks for providing a positive role model to fellow gays. I just finished watching your movie again, and it moved me to contact you and express my admiration and thanks to you. As the current administration chips away at our sense of pride and self-esteme, I have tried in some small way to send out a personal message to other local gay couples that a social group exists for them to feel normal and accepted. And I find myself moved increasingly to political activism and speaking out. In fact, we polled our membership (we have nearly 50 member couples and we belong to a national organization of 10 other chapters), and the majority of of members felt our organization needs to be more political to bring about positive change. So thanks for your inspiration, and for being there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Very Sincerely, Dan

Thank you for being out there to make a difference for couples elsewhere. What a great example of what can be done when you are enough.

JUST REALIZED TODAY THAT WE HAVE KNOWN EACH OTHER FOR 40 YEARS. WE HAD A LOT OF FUN PLAYING MUSIC TOGETHER IN THE EARLY SIXTIES, HUH? WE NEVER KNOW WHERE OUR LIVES WILL TAKE US WHEN WE ARE THAT YOUNG. FRANKLY, GRETHE, I WOULD NOT CHANGE ANY OF MINE, CONSIDERING WHERE I FEEL LIKE I AM TODAY. KNOWING YOU, EVEN THOUGH OUR MEETINGS HAVE BEEN FEW AND FAR BETWEEN,HAS BEEN ONE OF THE BEST THINGS THAT EVER HAPPENED IN MY LIFE. I WISH FOR YOU AND DIANE ALL THE BEST GOD HAS TO GIVE YOU.
