Gay Boy Scouts

Here is the BBC’s take on the recent announcement that the Boy Scouts will be permitting openly gay scouts.  

The Boy Scouts of America organisation has voted to welcome openly gay scouts from January 2014, but a ban on openly gay adult scout leaders will remain in place.

At a meeting in Texas, more than 60% of the national council of 1,400 voting members supported the change.

The campaign to overturn the ban pitted conservatives against liberals opposed to what they deem outdated discrimination.
