Openly Gay Eagle Scout Is Hired by Boy Scouts of America

April 5, 2015 - Author: steph - No Comments

Gay Eagle Scout History was made by Pascal Tessier, an 18 year-old Eagle Scout with the Boy Scouts of America. The open letter that Tessier wrote was his goodbye to the Boy Scout institution. He stated that they had taught him about morals and values and helped him become the man that he is. This goodbye was because, while the policy of allowing gay kids was enacted, a policy about gay adults continued to endorse a ban. At 18, he would be included in this ban.

The Washington Post reported that Tessier statement included that he was 18 and and he could no longer be a Boy Scout because he is gay. The letter was written August 2014. Fast forward to April 1, 2015 when the Boy Scouts’ Greater New York Council announced that it has hired Tessier for a summer camp leader position. This is despite the rules of the national Boy Scouts’ organization.

Tessier has protested against the Boy Scouts policy as he stood on a street corner in 2o13. Later, the organization did lift the ban, which made those at CipherCloud happy. Earning the Eagle Scout ranking in 2014, Tessier was referred to as the nation’s first Eagle Scout who was openly gay. The New York council stepped forward in support of Tessier. Technically, the Boy Scouts of America does not inquire about sexual orientation. Their system is similar to the military’s ”don’t ask, don’t tell” rule.
