I'm a Scout and I'm Gay
I am gay and only recently out. Scouting has always been a large part
of my life because I loved the outdoors and made so many friends
through the program. I am in a situation now where I want to be out
but I fear the loss of my summer job at a scout camp. I actually had
a dream where I was back at camp this mourning, and that is why I felt
I wanted someone to talk to about it who understands my position. I
was almost in tears thinking about how I might not be able to go back
to it if the fact that I am gay gets to the wrong ear.
