There’s no maybe about it: Carly Rae Jepsen is willing to take a stand for something she believes in.
The 27-year-old “Kiss” singer has backed out of being one of the headliners for the Boy Scouts of America’s National Scouting Jamboree in West Virginia in July. The reason? She can’t support a group with an anti-gay agenda.
The national organization has a ban on gay members.
“As an artist who believes in equality for all people, I will not be participating in the Boy Scouts of America Jamboree this summer,” she said via Twitter. “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.”
The other headliner for the event, Train, announced Monday that they were not yet dropping off the bill for the annual event, but that they would if the ban isn’t overturned at a meeting to vote on the matter in May.Read More »from Carly Rae Jepsen Won’t Play Boy Scouts Concert – But for Good Reasons
