Leaders in the movement to end the Boy Scouts of America's (BSA) ban on openly gay scouts and leaders on Monday delivered more than 1.4 million signatures to the organization.

The BSA's national board will consider ending the ban and allowing local chapters to decide the issue at its regularly scheduled meeting, which began on Monday.

The signatures, which have been combined from four Change.org petitions, were delivered by gay former den leader Jennifer Tyrrell, gay former Scoutmaster Greg Bourke and his family, gay Eagle Scout Will Oliver and his two straight Eagle Scout brothers, and Eric Andresen, father of Ryan Andresen.

Stacks of boxes labeled “1.4 Million Urge Boy Scouts to End Ban on Gay Scouts and Leaders” were delivered outside the Boy Scouts National Headquarters in Dallas, Texas, where the organization's board is meeting.

“Today, I'm helping deliver more than 1.4 million Change.org petition signatures to the Boy Scouts of America, urging the national board to end the ban on gay youth and parents, and give me the opportunity to once again serve my son's Club Scout Pack,” said Tyrrell. “I do not want one more mother or father to have to look their child in the eyes and tell them that their parents aren't good enough – or are different. The Boy Scouts of America can do better than that.”

Tyrrell launched her Change.org petition in April after she was ousted as den leader of her son's Boy Scout troop because she is a lesbian.

“I want to tell the BSA that my son Ryan is not inferior and that no parent should ever have to go through delivering devastating news like I had to deliver to my son,” said Andresen. “I pray that the BSA national board starts to understand this, and acts quickly to make the incredible scouting journey open to all young men across America.” (Video from the event is embedded on this page.

Ryan Andresen was denied an Eagle Scout award after he completed the work needed to earn it because he is gay.

The board is expected to vote on the proposal by Wednesday.
