The NOH8 campaign has announced its plans to work with Jennifer Tyrrell the Ohio mom ousted by the Boy Scouts of America for being an openly gay pack leader on a new campaign. The NOH8 campaign is offering complimentary NOH8 photos to any Scout who attends any upcoming NOH8 photo shoots in uniform & with a Scout ID to show their support for gay scouts. Tyrrell stated, "This isn't just about Boy Scouts this is about equality in all aspects of life. Boy Scouts of America needs to realize that they're sending a dangerous message to children by telling them that they're not good enough. Together with GLAAD, I am making sure no parent ever has to look their child in the eye & say we're not good enough. You have no idea how much that hurts because Alicia & I are good enough and these kids, that we're raising, are amazing. Ask anyone." Scouts can take advantage of this unique opportunity & join the NOH8 Campaign for a special Hollywood-style photo shoot this Sunday April 28th in Los Angeles. It’s hosted by Mack Sennett Studios who has graciously donated their largest stage to NOH8 for this event. It’s scheduled for 2P - 5P & will feature appearances by special guests throughout the afternoon.
