Ex-athlete talks about being gay at BYU

In the wake of the suspension of basketball star Brandon Davies for having premarital sex with his girlfriend, BYU's honor code has been in the news. Which led to questions of how it is to be a gay athlete at BYU.

I interviewed a former BYU athlete, briefly on the football team and a star on the track team, who went to the school knowing he was gay. He tells why he never broke the honor code, and how leaving the school was liberating. It's a window into a fascinating world.
