On Tuesday, July 17, the BSA affirmed its ban on openly gay Scouts and gay and lesbian Scout Leaders, announcing that an eleven member secret committee had unanimously voted to uphold the ban. Scouts for Equality immediately pushed back, and co-founder Zach Wahls called on the BSA to put the resolution up for a vote before its Executive Board via a Change.org petition that has since received more than 130,000 signatures.
Stay tuned for more information as the campaign continues to develop.
