There have been numerous protests against the Girl Scouts for stading up for *all* girls by including transgendered girls in their groups.  Bobby Montoya has found a new, welcoming, Girl Scout group and is selling Girl Scout Cookies.  If you want to show your support for Girl Scouts, inclusivity and Bobby specifically, you can find out how here (cookie donation):

TransYouth Family Allies (TYFA) has launched this web page to assist a new transgender Girl Scout and her troop with their annual cookie drive.

 

Bobby Montoya was in the news in 2011 after seeking to join a local Girl Scout troop. Girl Scouts of Colorado released a statement supporting trans youth, saying “If a child identifies as a girl and the child's family presents her as a girl, Girl Scouts of Colorado welcomes her as a Girl Scout.”

 

Bobby Montoya's Girl Scout Cookie Drive

Bobby is a member of the newly-formed Girl Scouts Colorado Troop 5-4665. Any donations made online will go toward cookies that will be distributed to their hometown charity, Mount Saint Vincent Home, which has assisted over 18,000 abused and neglected Colorado children since 1883. Proceeds will also go to Boots on the Ground, which distributes Girl Scout Cookies to active-duty military servicemembers.

 

To donate to Bobby’s troop and support Girl Scouts, abused and neglected children, and American servicemembers, please click here.

 

 

 

I think it would send a GREAT message if Bobby ended up being the #1 seller this year!
