Carly Rae Jepsen-less Boy Scout Jamboree Gets 3 Doors Down To Perform Despite LGBT Inequities!

boy scout jamboree three doors down replaces carly rae jepsen train equal rights lgtb

The Boy Scouts of America made a lot of progress this past year, but, frankly, the group still hasn't done enough!

Carly Rae Jepsen and Train were so displeased with the organization's continued intolerance that she dropped out of the BSA's National Jamboree months ago, refusing to perform for them until total equality was reached.

Apparently, though, not every musician is as concerned with equal rights and the fate of the LGBT community.

3 Doors Down signed on to headline tomorrow's concert, regardless of the fact that the policy change on permitting gay troop members isn't going through until January and openly gay troop leaders continue to remain barred from volunteering for the foreseeable future.

The bands rep isn;t commenting, but we want to know why the Here Without You singers performs for a group that condones sexual orientation-based discrimination!? !

The Boy Scouts do good within many different communities, there is no denying that, but many of their policies are antiquated and exclusionary!!

We were proud of the way CRJ stood up for ALL of her fans earlier this year when the Call Me Maybe singer tweeted:

Yup, even in the modern age and with the giant leap we took yesterday for equal rights, there are still plenty of folks who commit bigotry.

Actually, there are a number of stars, even A-listers, who've offended an ENTIRE people with derogatory words, behavior and pics.

Boy Scouts Lift Ban On Openly Gay Members, No Such Luck For Scout Leaders!

boy scouts vote allow openly gay members maintain ban on gay adult leaders

It's about time!!

After months of endless debate, the Boy Scouts of America finally voted to allow openly gay scouts to join their ranks!!

Over 60% of the 1,400 person polled think the youth organization should allow all qualified members, regardless of sexual orientation!!

Even though the a large percentage of the organization is run by those affiliated with Mormon and Catholic churches who are, sadly, sometimes unhip to LGBT tolerance, the measure was still able to pass!

The first hard fought battle was won, but plenty of work remains!!

Snoop Changes His Tune On Homosexuality And The Rap Community!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayMusic MinuteZportzLegal MattersPolitikSnoop

snoop revises gay rap

Now THIS is exactly what we like to hear!

While Snoop Dogg Lion has always been vocal in his support of the LGBT community, he recently raised some eyebrows during a recent interview by offering a very limited perspective on the possibility of homosexuality being accepted by the rap and hip-hop community!

However, it appears that the Reincarnated version of Bob Marley has re-evaluated his perspective on the matter, and in a new interview, now asserts that with the continuous merging of so many genres in the music world, as well as the political and cultural progression toward acceptance and unity, there may very well be openly gay rappers and hip-hop artists much sooner than later!

As he explains:

Emma Stone’s sensational sweetheart, Andrew Garfield, recently made his feelings clear on the status of marriage equality.

And he’s all for it!!

In 2006, the man we now know and love as Spider-Man played a role in the production of Beautiful Thing, a gay-themed play. This play is being revived in West London, and The Times of London got a chance to talk to our favorite spidey hero about both the play and same-sex marriage.

He summarized his thoughts on marriage equality in a way only a superhero could, saying:
