Openly gay filmmaker fired from Brigham Young University

“Kendall was terminated for two basic reasons. He refused to come to work, and he refused to communicate with his supervisor.”

— Brigham Young University spokesperson Carri Jenkins on the firing of Kendall Wilcox, “an executive producer in the school’s broadcasting department who, on his own time, is making an independent documentary about being gay and Mormon.” Wilcox claimed on this Facebook page that he had been facing “an increasingly hostile work environment over the last several months with which I refused to continue to engage.” (The Salt Lake Tribune)
