Report: Boy Scouts may soon allow gays to explore khaki's many joys

by Jeremy Hooper

Knowing how many of my friends and fellows have worked on this, I'm quite thrilled by this unexpected development:

Scoutsban News broke today that the Boy Scouts of America is "actively considering" an end to the policy that bans gay scouts and leaders. The decision follows a nearly yearlong campaign by GLAAD and Scouts for Equality, as well as Change.org petitions signed by more than 1.2 million people calling for an end to the BSA’s ban on gay Scouts and Scout leaders.

The right to tie knots, both literal and figurative—we're winning, it would seem.
