“To be physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight”—this is the Boy Scout Oath. Since 1910, millions of boys have joined. But today, if you are openly gay, you can’t. Witness how one remarkable 13-year-old scout named Steven Cozza launches a campaign to overturn the ban on gays. Scouting for All is the movement built by Cozza with the help of a long-time Scout leader, community members, and his own family. Scout’s Honor also includes the stories of ousted gay Eagle Scouts Tim Curran and James Dale, whose legal cases culminate at the United States Supreme Court. There, a private organization’s right to determine its membership goes head to head with a state’s right to protect all its citizens.
