Jesse is an openly gay law student in Utah. He was expelled from Brigham Young University in 2002 for violating the school's honor code. His infraction? Dating a boy. The school spelled out terms for Jesse's return to school in a long and pretty hilarious letter, which Jesse has posted to his blog. Gotta love item 10:

Avoid Even Marginal homosexual Conduct: forsake any participation with homosexual men and avoid inappropriate behavior such as kissing, hugging, romantic touching, clubbing, dating, etc., even for non-sexual purposes.

We can infer that at some point another busted BYU claimed that he was hugging and kissing and clubbing and romantically touching other guys but it was okay because it was for "non-sexual purposes."
