Ryan Andresen, Gay Boy Scout Denied Eagle Award, to Be Honored by California Pols

Ryan Andresen, the incredibly badass 18-year-old who was booted from boy scouts because he's gay, is getting the recognition he so deserves. After scoring a spot on the Ellen Show and Anderson Cooper 360, the East Bay teen's next stop is the state capitol, where he'll be honored by the California Assembly.

As readers probably recall, Ryan — a lifelong boy scout — was recently denied the top honor Eagle Award he rightfully earned after scout leaders decided his sexual orientation wasn't Scouts material.
