Ousted lesbian Boy Scout leader and mom, Jennifer Tyrrell is receiving support from all over the Twitterverse in the midst of a Mother’s Day campaign launched by GLAAD and Change.org.
Details after the jump!
Celebrities are tweeting their support for Tyrrell, who was removed as her son's scout leader because of her sexual orientation. The Boy Scouts of America currently bans gay scouts and gay scout leaders.
Julianne Moore, Kelly Osbourne, Max Adler, Rita Wilson, Fran Drescher, Lisa Lampanelli, Perez Hilton, Jane Leeves joined our younger boyfriend (and ally) Josh Hutcherson, Benicio del Toro, and stars of Glee and Real Housewives in supporting Jennifer Tyrrell.
Change.org’s petition in support of Tyrrell has almost 300,000 signatures. We’re thinking we can get her a few more over Mother’s Day weekend!
