Excerpts from the Kevin Jennings profile:

A native of Winston-Salem, North Carolina, Kevin Jennings was raised by a father who was a Baptist minister, and a mother who was irreligious and anti-Catholic. After graduating from Harvard College in 1985, Jennings took a job as a high-school history teacher. Three years later he became a guidance counselor for America’s first Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) at the Concord Academy in Massachusetts. . . .

In a 1997 speech Jennings expressed his deep admiration for one of America’s first homosexual activists, Communist Party member Harry Hay. Hay founded the gay-rights group the Mattachine Society in 1948 and the Radical Faeries in 1979. In addition, Hay was a longtime advocate for the North American Man-Boy Love Association. . . .

In June 2009 President Barack Obama appointed Jennings as Assistant Deputy Secretary of Education in charge of the Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools.
