This year, gay television and internet personality, B. Scott, was hired by BET to host the pre-show for their annual award ceremony which aired last Sunday. Scott's attires often do not conform to expected gender norms. BET's decision to hire B. Scott was a great step forward but unfortunately B. Scott was reportedly asked to make changes to his ensemble.
