Eagle Scout Urges Carly Rae Jepsen to Denounce Ban on LGBTQ Youth

This is a little odd – the Boy Scouts have hired Carly Rae Jepsen and Train to headline their annual  Scout Jamboree. Both Jepsen and the members of Train have spoken out in favor of LGBTQ equality. Jepsen’s video for “Call Me Maybe” has a gay twist at the end. ???

However, it does present a good opportunity for the artists to take a stand against the ban. From GLAAD:

GLAAD is working with Eagle Scout and former Boy Scout camp leader Derek Nance to call on musicians Carly Rae Jepsen and Train to denounce the Boy Scouts of America’s (BSA) ban on gay scouts and scout leaders and call for a national policy of non-discrimination. Yesterday GLAAD and Eagle Scout Will Oliver renewed calls for the National Geographic Channel to air a disclaimer before the premiere of the new series Are You Tougher Than a Boy Scout .

Join us in taking a stand by signing Derek’s Change.org petition here.

GLAAD even created a fun graphic. And you know I’m a fan of Call Me Maybe parodies.

Boy Scouts, LGBT, Carly Rae Jepsen

Please sign the petition. We need to continue holding the Boy Scouts of America’s feet to the fire on the hurtful impact of their ban.
