Boy Scouts Prepare to Force Out Gay Eagle Scout While Allowing His Straight Twin Brother to Stay: VIDEO


Liam and August Easton-Calabria are Eagle Scouts. They are also twin brothers.

Soon, Liam (right) will be forced out of the Scouts because he is gay. His brother is straight.

Seattle's KOMO News interviewed the twins about the discrimination.

Said Liam: "It was an interesting revelation to see the Boy Scouts come together as a non-inclusive organization. I don't think it's true to the scouting way. I mean, absolutely, scouting should be an inclusive organization."

In related news, Geoffrey McGrath, whose story we have featured quite a few times recently on Towleroad, is fighting the Scouts after being forced out over his sexual orientation. And the BSA has pulled the church's charter for standing by him.
