But on Wednesday the Boy Scouts of America is lifting its ban on openly gay youths, and for the first time in the organization's 103-year history, members such as Tessier — who realized he was gay after he joined — will be able to remain in Scouting.
"Every organization has to be a living entity and change with the times, including churches and including the Boy Scouts," said Alan Snyder, who voted in favor of the change as board chairman of the Boy Scouts' Western Los Angeles County Council, which covers about two-thirds of the county and includes about 5,000 volunteers and 14,000 boys.
The lengthy, controversial approval process this year sparked protests and garnered national attention.
