One Thing I Learned Before Grad School: How to be Gay

Alden C. Golab

Last Spring, I was invited to take part in a PechaKucha tradition at the UChicago Harris School of Public Policy, where I’m getting my Master’s degree. If you’re not in the know (I wasn’t), PechaKucha talks are centered around 20 slides of visual content with only 20 seconds for the speaker to talk about each. At Harris, students organize a PechaKucha night twice a year to help students get to know each other; the theme: One Thing I Learned Before Grad School. I learned how to be gay. Enjoy.
