Boy Scouts Considering Allowing Gay Members
A Boy Scouts spokesman said that the organization is considering repealing it's ban of gay members.
This ban has been in place for ten years. It barred "open or avowed homosexuals" from being a part of the program.
This change would need approval from the national board, which meets next week.
This act, if approved, wouldn't force all Boy Scout groups to include LGBTQ youth, but rather allow them to decide their own policies.
