Constance McMillen is an 18-year-old student at Itawamba Agricultural High School in Fulton, Mississippi, who asked to be able to take her girlfriend to the school prom. The school board denied her request, and the ACLU became involved. Now the school has cancelled the prom all together, blaming "distractions to the educational process caused by recent events".
I can't imagine taking a stand like this when I was a young dykeling. Good on you, Constance, and the great example you are setting to gay youth and discrimatory adults all over America.
