Hooray for the good guys!
Carly Rae Jepsen tweeted today that she does NOT plan to take part in the Boy Scouts of America’s Jamboree this summer due to anti-gay practices.
She went on to tweet: “I always have and will continue to support the LGBT community on a global level and and stay informed on the ever changing landscape in the ongoing battle for gay rights in this country and across the globe.”
Early today I posted that rock band TRAIN has made the same decision about the Boy Scouts and their anti-gay discrimination.
Yes – the Boy Scouts get to have their own position. But it doesn’t mean artists and the public have to support it.
Yay Carly Rae!
