The Boy Scouts Of America Lift Ban On Gay Scouts

By a vote of 68% to 31%, the Boy Scouts Of America have voted to lift the ban on gay scouts.

But the ban on gay scout leaders remains in effect. So adult gay men can’t be trusted, I guess.

GLAAD’s response:

“Today’s vote is a significant victory for gay youth across the nation and a clear indication that the Boy Scouts’ ban on gay adult leaders will also inevitably end,” said GLAAD spokesperson, Rich Ferraro. “The Boy Scouts of America heard from religious leaders, corporate sponsors and so many Scouting families who want an end to discrimination against gay people, and GLAAD will continue this work with those committed to equality in Scouting until gay parents and adults are able to participate.”
