John A. Buehrens

Born in New Jersey in 1947, Buehrens engaged the Boy Scouts of America over issues of God and acceptance of bisexual, gay, lesbian, and transgender (BGLT) scouts and scout leaders. The Buehrens administration oversaw the introduction of Our Whole Lives (OWL), our most recent comprehensive sexuality education curricula. Buehrens also recognized that there was a need for Unitarian Universalist books that Beacon Press could not publish and created Skinner House Books to print those texts.
