Leave Immediately


Excerpt from a September 23rd, 1965 address by BYU president Ernest Wilkinson, ‘Make Honor Your Standard’: 1

“Nor do we do not intend to admit to our campus any homosexuals. If any of you have this tendency and have not completely abandoned it, may I suggest that you leave the university immediately after this assembly; … We do not want others on this campus to be contaminated by your presence.”
