Mom Thrown Out As Boy Scout Leader Now Featured In Documentary

Posted: Updated:

The mom who was thrown out as a boy scout leader because of her sexual orientation may have the last word.

Jennifer Tyrrell of Bridgeport is now out of scouting, but her story may go worldwide.

She is one of several gay individuals being featured in a documentary called "Second Class Citizens."

A film crew spent the day in Bridgeport, shooting Tyrrell's portion of the documentary.

"These nice folks are traveling all over the country interviewing gay people who are, in essence, second class citizens, and in America where we're all supposed to be free," said Tyrrell. "I'm honored to be part of it. I'm grateful they contacted me and they're including, obviously, the scouting story in there."

Tyrrell says the film will be released next year.

Find it on Facebook under "Second Class Citizens" and watch a trailer.

Tyrrell says, "It's what we have to do to get our story out there."
