Gay Man comes Out and Wants to Help Scouting for All
January 4, 2006
My name is Jeremy and I am a college student in Richmond, VA. I received my eagle scout about 4 years ago when
I was 17. Since then I have come out as a gay man to my family, my friends, and my community and am extremely
concerned by the BSA's policies of discrimination against LGBTQ people, women, and atheists and other nontheists.
I have considered mailing my award back to the national center as a protest but wanted to consult with someone
at Scouting for All first to see if this was a good idea. If so, are there things I can do to call attention to
this action of protest and make it the most visible and effective action possible?
Thank you for your advice.
