Carly Rae Jepsen was supposed to perform with Train at the annual Boy Scouts Jamboree but has pulled out due to their stance on not allowing gay people in the Boy Scouts organization:
As an artist who believes in equality for all people, I will not be participating in the Boy Scouts of America Jamboree this summer… I always have and will continue to support the LGBT community on a global level and stay informed on the ever changing landscape in the ongoing battle for gay rights in this country and across the globe.
And while Train hasn’t pulled out yet, they posted this on their web site:
When we booked this show for the Boy Scouts of America we were not aware of any policy barring openly gay people from participation within the organization. Train strongly opposes any kind of policy that questions the equality of any American citizen. We have always seen the BSA as a great and noble organization. We look forward to participating in the Jamboree this summer, as long as they make the right decision before then.
