A social network for gay scouts, leaders and supporters has launched.

The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) announced on Monday that it is considering ending its ban on openly gay scouts and leaders. The BSA board could vote on the issue as early as next week. The proposal calls for allowing individual organizations to decide the issue for themselves.

In a press release announcing its launch, OutScouts.com said it was preparing for the “imminent reversal of the ban.”

“We are elated that this discriminatory chapter in American history has finally come to an end,” John McKinnon, a former Eagle Scout and founder of OutScouts.com, said in a statement. “The lifting of the ban against gay scouts and leaders will bring equality to the Boy Scouts of America; a highly respected organization comprised of Americans from every conceivable background – including those in the LGBT community.”
