The American scoutingorganisatie Boy Scouts of America transgender boys admitted to their programs.

Scouting puts the old policy, that the gender on the birth certificate leading to admission, overboard. This admissions policy was more than a century of application in the Boy Scouts. According to the organization, the new policy is possible by regulatory changes in a number of American states.

“Starting today, we accept young people in the scoutingprogramma on the basis of sex which filled in on the registration form,” says the organization in a statement.
