A student group at BYU, which the Princeton Review has consistently ranked as one of the most unfriendly campuses for lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender students, has made an "It Gets Better" video that features gay Mormon students sharing their struggles to reconcile their sexuality and their religion. A female student in the video, upon realizing she was a lesbian, said, "It scared me. It absolutely terrified me, naturally, because I truly believed in this church, and these feelings did not coincide with that church."

All BYU students are prohibited from having premarital sex, but heterosexual students can show affection in public. Homosexual students cannot. The BYU 2011 Honor Code states, "Brigham Young University will respond to homosexual behavior rather than to feelings or attraction and welcomes as full members of the university community all whose behavior meets university standards."
