Daily Herald – Group pushing gay rights plan rally near BYU
A gay rights advocacy group may make an unauthorized visit to BYU’s campus on Tuesday — which they said could get them arrested.
The Soulforce Equality Ride will hold a rally near Brigham Young University on Monday. On Tuesday, participants plan to march from the Provo LDS temple to the BYU campus carrying Easter lilies “as a sign of hope and new dialogue about the devastating effects of BYU and LDS opposition to full acceptance” of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people, the group said in a news release on Wednesday. “This action may be accepted by the BYU administration or may result in arrest.”
Soulforce objects to BYU’s honor code, which prohibits homosexual behavior. All students are required to sign it
