Trail Life USA Splits from Boy Scouts Over Gay Youth Policy


The national council voted back in May to make the change that no youth will be denied membership because of their sexual orientation. However, gay adult leaders are still banned.

WASHINGTON (WBKO) -- Going into effect with the new year, the Boy Scouts of America is allowing openly gay members for the first time.

The national council voted back in May to make the change that no youth will be denied membership because of their sexual orientation. However, gay adult leaders are still banned.

The move has caused backlash, and even the creation of a new group called Trail Life USA. It is exactly like Boy Scouts, except gay members are banned.
