Charles Wood – Discrimination

Charles Speaking On:


“We took him off the mailing list.”

For years [my wife] Ann was an editor of [the PFLAG newsletter], and we had a mailing list of 300. Here, there, and around about and various people. And we put Boy Scouts of America, Spokane Council on the mailing list. It went for several dates, and then finally we got a very abrupt letter from the executive. He was very irritated because he claimed that he had written us several times and asked us to take them off the mailing list because Boy Scouts were not happy with gays. We took him off the mailing list.
