Queer Mormons say they’ve been put in danger by ‘cruel’ university as it U-turns on homosexuality policy

The Mormon Brigham Young University (BYU) has backtracked on removing a ban “homosexual behaviour”, announcing that “same-sex romantic behaviour” is still outlawed. BYU in Utah is run by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (LDS), commonly known as the Mormon church. Students can be expelled for not adhering to the university’s Honor Code, and until last month it specifically prohibited “homosexual behaviour”. The Mormon university removed a ban on “homosexual behaviour” last month. The code used to state: “Homosexual behavior is inappropriate and violates the Honor Code. In February, the entire section of the Honor Code on “homosexual behaviour” was removed. But a few days after altering the Honor Code, the university released a statement saying that there had been some “miscommunication” about what the amendments meant.
