Gay Adults Can Finally Be A Part Of The Boy Scouts — But How Close Was The Vote?

It's about time.

Despite living in a country where same-sex marriage is now legal in all 50 states, the Boy Scouts of America have had a controversial history of disallowing gay people into their organization.

It was a landmark decision when the Boy Scouts finally let gay children into their club, but they were still adamant about not allowing homosexual adults to take part in den leadership.

Well, that's all a thing of the past, because the National Executive Board for the org just voted to rectify the scandalous rule that's been in effect since they were founded in 1910.

And the best part?

no title

The horror!

In an unprecedented move, 50 Girl Scouts descended upon the White House lawn on Tuesday, shocking America and making camp for the night.

No, this isn't some sort of coup — it's actually just the first time anyone's ever spent the night on the South Lawn!

President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama invited girls from West Virginia, Virginia, Washington, DC and Oklahoma to make history and teach them the ropes about all things scouting.

Michelle kicked off the event with an adorable introduction, saying:

"I really just wanted to formally welcome you to the White House. There it is, it's right there.

You're making history, this is something you can tell you kids and your grand kids, do you understand the impact of this day?"

Naturally, the 10 and 11-year-olds didn't quite understand how significant their sleepover actually was, but at least Michelle seemed to have fun!

Ch-ch-check out how the historic day unfolded (below)!!!

The Girl Scouts Just Did The Most AMAZING Thing When A Donor Made An Anti-Transgender Demand!

Filed under: InspirationAmazingStuff 4 KidzTransgenderLGBT

The Girl Scouts of Western Washington completely shut down an anti-transgender donor!

The Girl Scouts aren't afraid to shut down haters. Even haters who throw $100K their way!

Four years ago, the organization announced it is accepting of ALL girls, including transgender members. In May, when the American Family Association tried to ban "boys in skirts" from being scouts, the organization shut it down by reminding them that if a person identifies as a girl, that person is more than welcome among the troops.

Around that time, a donor gave the Girl Scouts of Western Washington $100 thousand, but under one very discriminatory condition:

"Please guarantee that our gift will not be used to support transgender girls. If you can't, please return the money."

Council CEO Megan Ferland returned the hefty donation, explaining that there's no place for intolerance in the organization:

"Girl Scouts is for every girl. And every girl should have the opportunity to be a Girl Scout if she wants to."

The unfortunate part about sending the money back is that Megan said that it could have given 500 disadvantaged girls the opportunity to go to summer camp.

So, the Girl Scouts of Western Washington started an Indiegogo fundraiser — appropriately titled #ForEveryGirl — to make back the $100k donation they returned.

Ch-ch-check out the campaign video (below)!

Girl Scouts Opens Their Doors To Trans Members While The Boy Scouts Try To Lift Their Ban On Gay Scout Leaders!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayStuff 4 KidzLGBT

The Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts are finally getting their sh*t together!

It seems crazy that in 2015 there are STILL national organizations that are actually allowed to discriminate and exclude members based on their sexual orientation or gender!

But it looks like the Boy Scouts of America might FINALLY be getting their sh*t together!!

Last year, the Boy Scouts showed a bit of promise when they finally started allowing gay members to join as scouts! But that progress doesn't mean much when you realize they still have a ban on gay scout leaders!

[ Related: The BOY SCOUTS Lead The Way In Several Pride Parades! ]

Well, it sounds like that might change and SOON, as the group's president Robert Gates says there's NO way the ban will last! In fact, just last month the New York chapter announced they hired an openly gay scout leader as a summer camp leader!

While Robert says a change is gonna come, he also says
