Tyrrell, the Belmont County mom who last year was ousted as den leader of her son’s Boy Scout troop because she is a lesbian, has been an outspoken opponent of the Boy Scouts of America’s (BSA) ban on openly gay scouts and leaders. Wahls is the founder of Scouts for Equality, a leading voice calling for an end to the ban.
