Kat Graham's Nod to Ousted Lesbian Scout Leader on Ellen



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.
