The Scouts are looking to end rumours that the organisation is anti-gay after revealing their new scheme entitled “It is OK to be gay and a Scout” which aims to hire more gay people as leaders and recruits to coach the activities for the youths.

Scottish paper Scotland on Sunday reported that the organisations is planning to work hard to fight homophobic bullying.

Scouts spoekmen Simon Carter reportedly said: ‘ There was an assumption that being gay meant you couldn’t be part of the movement. That was never the case and we are keen to make it clear that we accept people of any particular orientation.

‘We have had youth members dads attend gay Pride events and plan to do so again this year. It shows that we are not just talking about it but are demonstrating our support publicly’.
