When Pascal Tessier, 16, steps out onto the field of Nationals Park Tuesday, June 25, to accept Team DC’s Spirit Award, all eyes will be on the young gay activist who has worked to bring equality to the Boy Scouts of America. And that’s exactly the point, says Team DC Executive Director Brent Minor.
“You’re on the ‘Jumbotron,’ full name and affiliation,” Minor points out. “If we can put up there ‘Scouts for Equality,’ it’s great. The visibility of this is very high. You can’t get bigger than the ‘Jumbotron’ as the stadium is filling up with people.”
