Actually, I think BYU takes their honor code very seriously (with the
exception of the football team).  If you were to report such behavior to
the proper person, there would likely be some disciplinary action taken
to match the seriousness of the offense (impersonating someone could be
considered quite serious).  And to be fair, any students involved in
extramarital sexual relations should expect immediate expulsion (if
anyone found out), this is not selectively applied to gay people.
