Burger King releases the PROUD Whopper!

 

burger.king.pride.whopper

For one week only, Burger King is selling a brand new burger, the PROUD Whopper. They introduced it during San Francisco’s 2014 Pride Festival this past Saturday, and will continue to be sold for the duration of Pride Week. What’s the Proud Whopper you ask? I’ll let Time explain it to you.

When customers visiting during Sunday’s pride parade asked cashiers what made this Whopper different from a standard-issue burger, they simply said, “I don’t know.” The mystery was revealed once diners opened the rainbow-colored wrapper and got a taste: absolutely nothing is different about this burger, nothing at all. To emphasize the point, the interior of the wrapper comes with a second message: “We Are All the Same Inside.”

Kicked Out Boy Scout Troop Finds New Home

FROM BSA TO BPSA: Kicked Out Boy Scout Troop Finds New Home in Baden-Powell Service Association

June 26 – Seattle – For those who believe the biggest hurdles of the LGBTQ community are centered in
marriage equality, I present Scoutmaster Geoffrey McGrath. He’s had an action-packed couple of months

98 and Pack 98 of the Boy Scouts of America until McGrath (who is openly gay and an Eagle Scout, himself)
contributed to a news item profiling troops in the BSA.

Boy Scouts to Add Khaki to NYC Pride March’s Rainbow

For the first time, an intergenerational cadre of uniformed gay Boy Scouts serve as color guard during New York City’s annual Pride Parade.

This year New York City’s famed Pride parade will include a bit more khaki than ever before, as a contingent of openly gay and allied Boy Scouts, Eagle Scouts, and volunteers serve as the color guard for the 44th Annual NYC Pride March, coming up Sunday.

Active scouts, alumni, volunteers, and allies connected with the Brooklyn chapter of advocacy group Scouts for Equality will present the American flag during the national anthem at the Pride March’s opening ceremonies, then will march through Manhattan to celebrate progress in LGBT rights and call for an end to the Boy Scouts of America’s decades-old policy barring openly gay adults from serving any role in the organization.
