Constance McMillen Becomes Poster Teen for Gay Rights

Constance McMillen, who is openly gay, asked her conservative high school in Fulton, Mississippi, if she could bring her girlfriend to prom; the school responded by banning prom altogether. Constance sued and is now a national hero — on the contrary, she faces growing hostility in her hometown, and some parents are planning an alternative prom that would also exclude the 18-year-old student.
