The Human Rights Campaign praised a potential move by the Boy Scouts of America to lift a national ban on gay members and leaders on Monday.
“The pulse of equality is strong in America, and today it beats a bit faster with news that the Boy Scouts may finally put an end to its long history of discrimination,” said HRC President Chad Griffin in a statement. “Our nation and its leaders respect lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender citizens, and it’s time the Boy Scouts echo those values.”
According to NBC News, the policy change could be voted upon and enacted as early as next week. Read the full BSA statement here.
