BYU Students Record "It Gets Better" Video, Challenge School Convention

In a brave move, LGBT students at Brigham Young University have released an "It Gets Better" video, describing their experiences within the Mormon church. 

BYU is a notoriously strict campus, reflecting the morals of Mormonism. Mormonism prohibits homosexuality (for more information, please see Tony Kushner's Angels in America). And yet here is a bunch of courageous gay Mormons, speaking out in the name of tolerance.

At one point in the video, one of the students mentions reconciling his faith and his sexuality. He doesn't go into detail, but it's one of the most charged moments in the piece. How does one do this?
