By Scouts for Equality
On 31, Jul 2012 | In scouting | By Scouts for Equality
The largest council in Minnesota and Western Wisconsin, the Northern Star Council, has said that homosexual individuals are welcome in its troops, even though the Boy Scouts of America has stated its opposition.
Northern Star joins several other councils that have expressed their defiance of the national policy. The Baden-Powell council in New York, the Narragansett Council in Rhode Island, and the Piedmont Council in California have also all stated their support for equality in scouting.
