IAmA camp counselor who got fired at Boy Scout camp for being gay and ten of my fellow staff members walked out with me. AMA
My name is Tim Griffin. I have worked at camp Winton for 9 years. I have been openly gay since 2009 and it has never been a problem until the reaffirmation of the BSA anti-gay policy last Tuesday, and I was fired two days after that. Ten of about 30 of my fellow staff members quit their jobs in solidarity and walked out with me.
