“A ‘gay-friendly’ Chicago public high school that will weave gay and lesbian “heroes” — from James Baldwin to Gertrude Stein — into its curriculum was among 20 new school proposals unveiled Wednesday… In U.S. history and other classes, “gay and lesbian historical figures” would be taught so gay youth ‘have heroes,’ said Bill Greaves, Chicago’s liaison on issues affecting the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. ‘We will teach the history of all people, but we are just going to make sure these people are not invisible in that history,” said Greaves, part of the Pride Campus design team.” The school hopes to open in 2010.
