The Boy Scouts have ended their ban on gay adults, but the work of the equality movement is far from over.
Individual units chartered by religious institutions can still discriminate against gay adults, while secularly chartered units must select leaders without regard to sexual orientation. However, there’s a monumental difference between a unit that begrudgingly accepts gay leaders and a unit that is openly and fully inclusive. In an effort to help families find the right unit for them, Scouts for Equality has set out to identify every inclusive unit in the BSA. Please help us by self-identifying as inclusive and/or participating in our Inclusive Unit Certification program.
Please keep in mind that this is a self-reported work in progress, and not every inclusive unit will be listed on this map. If you’d like to search for all units in your area using the BSA’s tools, please visit the BSA’s BeAScout website.How to Participate Sign up your Unit! Contact Scouts for Equality
