Yesterday, Train made it know that they have no desire to be part of the Boy Scouts of america Jamboree as long as they are against having gay scouts. now fellow jamboree performer Carly Rae Jepsen has also spoken out it and has decided that she would follow in suite and cancel her performance as long as the boy scouts believe that gay scouts shouldn’t be allowed.
The “Call Me Maybe” star tweeted the following on the subject matter:
“As an artist who believes in equality for all people, I will not be participating in the Boy Scouts of America Jamboree this summer. I always have and will continue to support the LGBT community on a global level and stay informed on the ever changing landscape in the ongoing battle for gay rights in this country and across the globe.”
Looks like the Change.org petition did what it wanted to; two of the main performers for the Jamboree have pulled out months before the summer concert was set to take place. In recent years, the organization has been taking a lot of heat over their ban on openly gay members. Back in January, there was talk about lifting the discriminatory ban, but the vote was scheduled to go to vote in May.
do us a big favor and don’t even enter the state. no needs to tell the boy scouts of america what they believe. ONCE A BOY SCOUT ALWAYS A BOY SCOUT. 61 YEARS NOW. STAND FAST STAND TALL. WE DON’T NEED ANYTHING GAY !
And Sir, you are entitled to your opinion just like everyone else is. You can back up the BSA on this issue, but everyone else can believe what they want. I just stated what Ms. Jepsen and the men from Train are standing for and why they pulled away from the show in July.
