Gay Ex-Boy Scout Speaks Out. Ryan Andresen sat down with BuzzFeed to talk about his struggles with bullying and what it was like to be denied his Eagle Scout rank by the Boy Scouts of America:
I really didn’t have any confidence in myself until I came out and that’s when I started really understanding myself and loving myself. So I always encourage people to [not] do it if it doesn’t feel right. However, you’re going to get a lot more support than you think.
