I was kicked out of BIOLA in 1978 for being gay. The Dean of Men who delivered the message, “leave within 24 hours, or be arrested.” first asked me “how long had I wanted to be a woman?” Such was his complete ignorance. Soon after I had departed, (for San Francisco,) I heard the next issue of The Chimes had a front page headline, “Have you heard of the scandal at BIOLA.” I’d love to be able to read that article, maybe I’m famous/infamous.

Like what you read? Give Mark Strait a round of applause.
