During Pride Day yesterday at the Washington D.C. school, Wilson High principal Pete Cahall came out in front of the entire student body. Cahall said he was inspired by his students to be honest about himself. In an emotional speech, delivered while flanked by Washington D.C. mayor Vincent C. Gray and David Catania, an openly gay city council member, Cahall explained why he had chosen this moment to come out.
