So I was thinking earlier today on a topic I think about a lot. Who are the other gay students at BYU? Of course, probably the more self-aware ones go to the USGA club, which I could go to if I really wanted. However, the majority probably haven’t really come out to themselves yet, still denying it, and will probably end up in some mixed orientation marriage, which will (though not for certain) end in disaster. I make this sweeping statement after reading many a story of such (so please don’t hate me). However, I digress.
While thinking on this topic, I stumbled upon some news clip that briefly mentioned the BYU gay underground. I had never heard of said ‘underground’ and didn’t know whether to be amused or not with this tidbit, or should I even believe it. Is this where other gay students go? Is it some sort of honor code breaking secret society or are they just “underground friend circles”? I probably would never even find these secret circles if they existed because I’m in an engineering major where, to say the least, gay people don’t exactly abound.
Sorry to anyone who’s reading this and feels disgusted by my writing style. I kinda jump around from thought to thought. I just wanted to jot down this train of thought and move on.
