This is how Pete Cahall, principal of Wilson High School, describes his feelings after coming out as gay in front of his school community on June 4. Cahall made his announcement at Wilson's 2nd annual Pride Day assembly.

"How can I look these kids in the eyes and tell them it's ok to be who they are-gay, straight, bisexual, or transgender, and this is a safe place to do it, when I wasn't able to speak my own truth," Cahall said, about his decision to come out. "I felt like a hypocrite."
Since the announcement, Cahall has received national attention and support from all over the country. He received letters of support from as far away as Germany. Many educators, students, and parents of LGBTQ children have commended him for his choice to come out.
Cahall recognizes that some people may feel uncomfortable with his choice to come out, but he feels that his sexuality does have a place in the school, just as much as his straight coworkers' sexuality does.
"While a straight principal doesn't come in and announce that's he straight, he does introduce his wife to people and has pictures of her on his desk," Cahall said.
In the weeks since Cahall's announcement, Wilson has also been in the news for a large counter-protest against the Westboro Baptist Church that took place just days after the Pride Day assembly in which Cahall came out.
