Eagle Scout Takes A Stand Against The BSA's Discrimination

October 17, 2008

My name is Thomas M. I am an Eagle Scout, and a former Assistant Scoutmaster. I have also been openly gay since my junior year in high school, which was 2001. I am no longer active in Boy Scouts, because they told one of my close friends that he could not receive his Eagle Scout Award because he is gay. So in protest against that very hurtful rule, I have decided to send back my Eagle Scout award to Scouting for All to hold in trust for me until the BSA changes its homophobic policy.
