Q: I am an Eagle Scout and I am gay. Having been involved with the Boy Scouts since I was six years old, I would like to become a scoutmaster for my local troop, but I don’t want to hide my sexual orientation. What should I do?
Lambda Legal fought the Boy Scouts’ discriminatory practices all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. Although our landmark case did not succeed in changing the Scouts’ policies, it advanced the discussion about the needs of gay youth.
