XO Jane
May 30, 2013
In April 2012, I was forced to resign as my son’s Boy Scout Den Leader because I am gay. In response, I launched a change.org petition with the help of GLAAD and held a local rally in Bridgeport, Ohio, in front of the church where we held our den meetings. This small town act of rebellion reignited a movement and created a firestorm of equality that has spread furiously across the nation, ultimately ending up with a historic decision by The Boy Scouts of America to allow gay youths. But it's still not enough. The decision last week continues a longstanding ban on gay adults. Gay adults like me. Let me start at the beginning.
