Carly Ray Jepsen has shown her support to her gay fanbase by pulling out of a gig at the Boy Scouts of America Jamboree due to their lack of support on gay rights.

After the organisation fired one of their leaders because he was gay, Carly Ray called time on appearing at their concert in July, Jambo 13.

She tweeted: "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."

Derek Nance, the Boy Scout Leader who was fired when he came out called on Carly Ray and another band, Train, to help highlight the discrimination within the organisation and both responded by refusing to perform.

The Boy Scouts of America has always had a "No Gays Policy", and ruled out a change in policy earlier this year. However, they began to edge towards allowing gay members, but have finally put off any change in policies till the executive board votes in May.
