A 19-year-old Eagle Scout has lost a summer job with the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) after he was accidentally outed as gay in a Facebook post.

Garrett Bryant, a freshman at Northern Arizona University, told the New York Daily News that he lost a summer job with the organization after he posted on Facebook that he was in a relationship. Friends cheered the news, and at least one asked, “What's his name?”

The BSA ended its policy banning openly gay scouts in January, but gays over 18 are not allowed to participate in the program.

“I did the best I could to follow BSA's 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' policy for gay members,” Bryant told the paper. “But I couldn't control other people outing me, even by accident. Following the rules as being an Eagle Scout apparently weren't enough for me to stay on camp staff.”

Bryant said he was told “homosexuality” was the reason he was turned down.

“I felt just extreme sadness,” he said. “I am not one to cry easily. It was pretty intense.”

Bryant also appeared on MSNBC's The Last Word, where he said he was “shocked” by the move.
