By ensuring that the stories of LGBT people are heard through the media, GLAAD promotes understanding, increases acceptance, and advances equality.
Snapshot of Our Work
The Boy Scouts of America ended its ban on gay Scouts following GLAAD's yearlong campaign to bring equality to Scouting. GLAAD first started calls for the Boy Scouts of America to end its ban on gay Scouts and Scout leaders in April 2012 after Jennifer Tyrrell, a mom and den leader from Ohio was removed from her 7-year-old’s Cub Scout pack for being gay. Since then and with GLAAD's support, more than 1.8 million signatures have been collected through Change.org calling for an end to the Boy Scouts' ban on gay members. GLAAD is continuing its call for the Boy Scouts to end its ban on gay parents and leaders. More at glaad.org/scouts
