A LGBTQ pride celebration at D.C.s Woodrow Wilson High School led to a big surprise for students Wednesday, as Principal Pete Cahall came out as gay in front of the crowd.
Cahall tells WNEWs Matt DelSignore that he just turned 50 and was tired of hiding.
I would be a hypocrite if I tell kids to be who you are and not be who I am, he said.
He admits that he was nervous at the thought of sharing his secret in front of hundreds of students. Before his announcement, his hands were shaking, he said.
But students were very supportive, responding with cheers and applause. Senior Aidan Parisi, who helped to organize Pride Day event, says a lot of jaws dropped, including his.
But, Parisi said, I was extremely proud of him for feeling comfortable to come out.
The notoriously anti-gay Westboro Baptist Church is planning a demonstration at the school on Monday. The groups website says its precisely because the school boasted that it would be the first public high school in the city, and maybe even the country, to host an LGBTQ pride event.
Wilson students are planning a counter-rally. Westboro Baptist Church is also planning several other demonstrations in the area in the coming days. The annual Capital Pride festival is also going on in D.C. through June 17.
Mayor Vincent Gray, who attended the high schools Pride Day, told reporters that the Westboro Baptist church can go straight to hell.
How did his wife feel about this?
Why do Kids need to know what this deviant does? I has no place in the school!
AMEN and AMEN
Jaws or drawers?
The guy takes it up the arse and tells minors about it, but Westboro is “notorious”
Wont be long until pedophiles will seek rights to do whatever, Sodom and Gomorrah, those were the good old days
How could they allow him to remain in that school?
It should be illegal for non-family members to even discuss sex with children
Question for the Principal: Would he have felt pride coming out as a heterosexual? Would such an announcement have been met with applause and a newspaper article or would the hetero been subject to an investigation?
Since we are into trends:
Anybody notice how many homosexuals end up choosing a career in teaching children?
For example, “Elmo loves you.”
I remember a day when that didn’t make my skin crawl.
No one wants to be grouped in with the Westburo cultists.
He should be fired immediately.
“Come out” to them as a 50 year old heterosexual virgin waiting for marriage.
Think there’d be any applause from the students or ridicule and laughter?
responding with cheers and applause.
I can’t wait for the World Religions Celebration Day at the Woodrow Wilson High School!!!
Wait, you can’t do that?
So, we can celebrate sodomy, but not religion.
Whatever happened to going to school to learn useful things like basic English, mathematics, American History, etc? Kids are graduating from high schools all over the country now with no basic skills, but they know everything about homosexuality. What are they learning? If they can’t be good at what they do they can always “come out” and then nobody will ever be able to criticize them again. And don’t even THINK about firing them or peacefully declining to associate with them or you’re going right to court.
This is where we are as a culture.
Years ago, a homosexual principal would have been summarily fired.
Today, homosexuality is openly celebrated.
The tone of this article makes it sound as if he had great courage to come out as he did. He knows there’s no chance of him being fired or reprimanded in any way due to this. How much courage does it take to do this, in today’s world???
Try being an evangelical Christian, and come out to your students in a school, proclaiming your Christianity. Then see what the reaction would be. Then let’s talk.
WHY OH WHY do these weirdos always have to drag random KIDS into this.
What the hell do any of his students care about what this guy does with his penis?!
It is so strange all these liberals, gays, etc. they always use children (often captive audiences) to be their kingdom or audience. It really is, queer, in the real sense of the word.
If I were a student there I’d get up and leave and say... uh this is school aren’t we supposed to be learning skills to get us a, you know, JOB?
What a narcissistic asshat this guy is.
Is there any doubt he will win educator of the year next year?
It’s interesting how they added the “Q” recently. But If I were to actually refer to them as queers, they’d be insulted. The more latitude they’re given, the more they reveal themselves as being mentally unstable.
Gays are no longer satisfied to simply live their lives quietly. No, the seek affirmation and applause for their perversion.
Oh, he was nervous!
NO HE WASN’T! He was salivating at sharing his sexual proclivities with minors. This is sickening.
New gay chant....”Come out Barak...Come out Hillary”
I wonder if he was friends with the gay principal in that was killed on what he thought was a “date” with an underaged boy that he set-up on a gay chat site.
Celebrate gay, lesbos etc...
Blah blah...Separate the moral implications for the sake of argument but how exactly does GLBT enrich the society or culture? I mean really...of what benefit does it serve for the nation? To claim that we are ‘more tolerant’ or sexually enlightnened diversity? Its just one big crock of warm stinky brown. Keep the sexual in private but therein lies the issue for the insecure GLBT. They have to flaunt it in the public sphere. Pox on them all and their supporters.
Truth is, it is now the exact opposite... There is absolutely no way they can fire him.
Quote from teen student where Principal Comes Out; “A lot of jaws dropped, including his.” Not the best choice of metaphors, given the topic.
It’s highly inappropriate to mentions one’s sexual preferences in front of the student body. He needs to be fired.
Well, that’s America-2014 for you.
Morality and decency are mocked and derided.
Depravity is cheered and celebrated.
It’s things like this that keep adding up each day, presenting the reality that America has dispensed with everything that made it great and good, and is devolving into a genuinely evil entity.
Gee, what else to expect from a captive, propangandized audience? Applaud or be bullied by the school.
Kind of like Obama soaking up praise from a rent-a-crowd. Validation for the self-deluded is all about control, not about genuine agreement.
How could they allow him to remain in that school?
Any school holding a "LGBTQ Pride Celebration" is so far over into the dark side that how could any parents allow their children to remain at that school?
At some point doesn't it get so bad that even parents who work (not home to home school) realize it's better to keep a child home alone than to give the perverts a free reign? Guess not. No shortage of evil presented and celebrated in broad daylight.
This guy's character is the same as when he was "hiding". IOW, he's a deceiver and a degenerate.
But the Boy Scouts now allow Queer Scout Masters to take the kids out on overnight camping trips -— and sit around and roast wieners!
Schools should stick to the 3 Rs and nothing else.
Very depressing. Who the heck ever cared who their high school principal slept with? But now that’s the only thing that matters.
They don’t want to be beaten down for disapproving
Oooooh. A great “educator” this guy/gay. He’s a great example “for the children”. I just hope he washes his hands before coming to school. Who knows just what they have been “touching”?
Jerry Sandusky could have been a school principle and living the dream unscathed instead of being a dreaded assistant football coach in jail for life.
Of course they did. Any kid who didn't jump up and down with joy at the news would be ostracized, called "homophobic" or whatever. I wonder how many kids felt uncomfortable, but didn't dare say anything?
I remember years ago when Ellen Degeneres came out on her sitcom. Throughout the episode, she kept telling other characters she was gay and every time, the studio audience erupted in cheers and applause. I remember thinking then that impressionable young viewers might get the idea that coming out as gay would be like winning the lottery. You'd get attention, compliments, congratulations, and cheers...all while being considered "brave." I thought then that more kids might soon be coming out as gay as a result.
Same with this story. When the principal made his announcement and got cheers and applause as a result, how many kids thought, "Gee, that looks like a great way to get attention, sympathy and approval"?
in most cases..either will do!!
I saw a clip of this on my local early morning news show. I get to the point where I think I've seen it all, and there is nothing left that can sicken me to the point of having my head nearly explode, but I was wrong.
The crowd of kids erupted with cheers and applause; they've been brainwashed to believe it's just another kind of "love", and all love is wonderful. A few kids spoke on camera; their comments were,"I think he should be proud!" "If he's happy, I'm happy!" "I respect him even more now!"
Proud of WHAT? Respect WHAT? The fact that he is a feces-obsessed, mentally ill and morally depraved deviant?

So true! Stoking the pride doesn’t hurt, either.
