More than 1,500 New Yorkers gathered today in Manhattan to mourn the death of a 32 year-old gay man, who was shot down on Friday just blocks away from the historic Stonewall Inn in an apparent act of anti-gay bias.
Boy Scouts of America surveying its pack leaders about gay ban
The blog Towleroad has obtained and posted screenshots of an online survey sent by the Boy Scouts of America to its pack leaders, asking them where they stand on the BSA's discriminatory ban on participation by gay people.
Many of the questions certainly seem designed to push respondents to want to keep the ban, like this one:
Bob is 15 years old, and the only openly gay Scout in a Boy Scout troop. Is it acceptable or unacceptable for the troop leader to allow Bob to tent with a heterosexual boy on an overnight camping trip?
But others seem more neutral, or could even be read as supportive of LGBT inclusion, like this one, which is obviously about Jen Tyrrell.
