He was the grandson of Boy Scouts of America founder William D. Boyce. The Boy
Scouts have become infamous for the controversy surrounding their ban on gay scouts and
leaders. Mueller was involved in the 1991 founding of The Forgotten Scouts, the first lobby
organization dedicated to ending this ban. He said, “I don’t think my grandfather would have
wanted me excluded from Scouting just because of my sexual orientation. My grandfather
would not have tolerated discrimination. He founded the Boy Scouts for all boys, not just for
some. I realized that if people like me don’t take a stand, the world isn’t going to change.”
