Washington, DC— (April 19, 2013) "The proposed end to the ban on gay Scouts is a big step forward, but the Boy Scouts of America can and should do better. There are three million parents in our country who are lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) and many of them want to support their children by giving their time and energy to the Boy Scouts. Scouting has a long tradition of being a family activity and it should be open to all our families."
