The NOH8 campaign has announced its plans to work with Jennifer Tyrrell, Ohio mom and ousted openly gay pack leader, on a new campaign. The NOH8 campaign is offering complimentary NOH8 photos to any Scout for equality who attends any upcoming NOH8 photo shoots in uniform and with a Scout ID to show their support for gay Scouts.

An online petition is asking the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum to honor Glenn Burke, the first openly gay Major League Baseball player, despite a previous refusal to do so.
