Boy Scouts of America

I’ve been following the season of change at the Boy Scouts of America as they’ve grappled with allowing gay membership to their ranks. They settled on permitting gay teens — but not adults — in May 2013, triggering historic changes for one of the country’s most popular youth organizations. The debate continues over gay adults, who feel left out of the new era.
