Boy Scouts settle with 9-year-old Transgender Scout for 18k

A transgender Secaucus boy and his mother will receive  18,000 from the Boy Scouts of America to settle an administrative civil rights complaint filed with state authorities earlier this year.

The transgender boy, who has publicly appeared at rallies and in media interviews as nine year old Joey Maldonado, was kicked out of a Secaucus Cub Scout troop last year allegedly because other scouts’ parents objected.
