The Boy Scouts Vote to Allow Gay Scouts

On May 23, 2013, the Boy Scouts of America voted to allow openly gay scouts for the first time ever. This happened after 1.8 million people signed petitions on Change.org encouraging the Boy Scouts to end the ban.

But gay troop leaders are still banned — that means parents like Jennifer Tyrrell are still not welcome in the Boy Scouts.
