Jennifer Tyrrell, the gay and lesbian world’s celebrity of the moment, arrived Wednesday morning at the Boy Scouts of America national headquarters in Irving with three cardboard boxes filled with a petition signed by more than 300,000 people.

Tyrrell, 32, an unemployed lumberyard worker from Bridgeport, Ohio, started gathering the signatures last April after the Scouts removed her as den leader for her son’s Cub Scout pack because she is a lesbian.

A gaggle of 20 reporters and photographers surrounded her on a hot asphalt parking lot between Scout headquarters and the National Scout Museum. She told them she and the petition signers want two things: her reinstatement as den leader and an end to the BSA policy that prohibits openly gay youth and adults from participation in Scouting.
