Just hours after the Boy Scouts of America announced they are holding fast on their policy of excluding gays, now the Bridgeport mother that started the movement talks one-on-one to WTRF.com.
On Monday morning National Spokesman for the scouts, Deron Smith, said the exclusion policy is absolutely the best policy for the organization.
The announcement came after the organization's board voted unanimously to uphold the policy. '
Monday night WTRF.com's Nate Fluharty spoke to Jennifer Tyrrell.
Tyrrell is currently in Dallas, Texas.
She said in no way will the ruling deter her fight for equality.
"This isn't a fight for just gay people, it's a fight for everyone that feels their rights are being recognized. I didn't just lose out of being a den mother, I was forced to miss a part of my son's life, " added Tyrrell.
One major driving force for Tyrrell is the overwhelming support she's received from all parts of the country.
"I've had so much support from so many people. In no way are we going to stop now," Tyrrell said.
Tyrrell also said she plans to deliver nearly 300,000 signed petitions to the Boy Scout board members.
