Singer and Vampire Diaries actress Kat Graham dedicated her performance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Tuesday to Jennifer Tyrrell, the lesbian mother who was pushed out of her position as a Boy Scout den leader because of her sexual orientation.
Graham, wearing a modified Boy Scout uniform with a big rainbow patch, started her performance by saying, "In my scout troop, everyone's welcome!"
Backstage, Graham posted a video about her performance and asked viewers to sign Tyrrell's Change.org petition urging the Boy Scouts to adopt an LGBT-inclusive policy.
