Constance McMillen was told she wouldn’t be able to bring her girlfriend as her date to Prom, the ACLU intervened on her behalf and the school eventually cancelled the Prom altogether. School officials are currently encouraging a private prom be organized that can continue to deny Constance and her girlfriend entrance.
As a rule I focus on mental health issues and not political issues. In this case I am posting this since I see going to the prom as a social mile stone that so many gay and lesbians have been denied in their lives, a chance to express you relationship choice in a public and supportive way.
I wonder if Itawamba, Mississippi still makes “black” students ride in the back of the bus.
