This is just fantastic!
All over the country, people took part in the gay pride parades this past Sunday, and in some places, they did something very special.
In both New York City and Seattle (above), the parades were led by the Boy Scouts of America!
New York saw scouts of all ages, from young adults to 78-year-old David Knapp, who was at the parade with his boyfriend, proudly holding a sign that read, “Boy Scout leader kicked out for being gay.”
Greg Bourke, a 56-year-old father who was ousted from his role as troop leader, said:

An inspiration, as always!
On Saturday, Lady GaGa will march in the gay pride parade in Rome's Circus Maximus, which marks the close of 2011 Euro Pride.
Here's what U.S. Ambassador to Italy David Thorne had to say about GaGa's involvement in the parade:
"[We are] very proud to have an Italian-American artist of her stature [come to the Italian capital.]"
More from Thorne about gay rights, in a quote from Hillary Clinton:
"Human rights are gay rights and gay rights are human rights.”
We couldn't agree more, and we're THRILLED to hear that our wifey is making the trek all the way out to Rome to rep for the gay community abroad!
EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL!
