Research about ex-Mormons (Official Call for Participants)

Hello,Some of you may know me as cumom (mythical beast from the Book of Ether) from FLAK or the former View from the Foyer. I have been in the past a frequent participator there. I'm a sociologist and have started a new research project about people who make big cultural shifts during their lifetimes, and one of the groups I will be researching are people who left Mormonism.  I'm looking for about 10 men and 10 women to participate; all participants' identities will be protected and anonymity…See More

Profile Information

Relationship Status (single, partner, etc):
single
My Story:
Mormon stuff: left the church at 26 for ethical reasons (found out about the history stuff later); RM, MTC teacher, BYU alum; great great great grandparents joined the church in Denmark and immigrated to Utah, ending up eventually in Mexico in the Colonies.

Regular stuff: 39 y/o, gay, social science professor...Why is this starting to feel like a personal ad?
Interests and Hobbies:
hiking, running, rugby (only watching now, I'm too old), reading, movies, cooking for friends (not that great at it, but I love it), politics, etc. Looking to revisit my first love from before my mission, music (piano and guitar).
Favorite Books:
too many to list. literally 1000s. Better to list what I'm currently reading as of 3/09: Biography of Edward Carpenter, History of India, The Name of the Wind. None of these are "great books", just what I'm reading now.
Favorite Movies:
Priest, Color Purple, Beautiful Thing, Ratatouille, Full Metal Jacket, Wings of Desire, Brokeback Mountain, Die Hard IV (so shoot me, I love a good hollywood action film), etc.
Favorite activity after mormonism?
same as before; see interests and hobbies above. I suppose I could add drinking good wine, smoking cigars, and having sex; but isn't that obvious, and also, so *normal* outside of Mormonism as to be too banal to mention.
