“I absolutely believe that [being gay] makes me more sensitive to the human condition, because it’s something that, as you grow up, you identify yourself as somehow being different, as somehow belonging to a group that’s not the norm. And so as I think of many of our kids, and certainly the lens by which they view the world, they also see themselves differently. And sometimes it has advantages, and sometimes it has disadvantages. But I believe being sensitive to it and thinking about it is very, very important as to how we structure programs and has to how we educate kids.” —Chicago Public Schools chief Ron Huberman on why his being gay can be an asset on the job [Towleroad]
