The (Private) Prom Constance McMillen Can Bring Her Girlfriend To

It’s hard to keep straight all the proms Mississippi high school senior Constance McMillen has been banned from and invited to. At last count, both Itawamba Agricultural High School’s school prom and a private prom organized by parents were nixed. Then there was an “all-inclusive” prom, sponsored by the Empowering Spirits Foundation, that is still a go for May 8. But now there is another private prom? Put on by parents? That Constance is invited to?

And she can wear her tux? And bring her girlfriend?

Oddly, the news of this second private prom comes from Michele Floyd, an attorney for the school — even though the prom is being hosted by the parents of a classmate. But so far, we haven’t heard whether Constance has accepted the invite. (Nor have we heard who this classmate or the parents are!) UPDATE: This report says Constance is confirmed.

Go get ’em, girl.

    She’s going??
    I hope she has armed guards & doesn’t get poisoned by the kids/ parents who tried banning her in the first place.

    this, sad 2 say, could still turn ugly!

    @jeffree: I agree. After all thats happened there, I would be quite nervous to go to this thing. A week ago or less, she was being harrassed by clasmates and parents over all this crap, and reading comments on all the stories about this on a Jackson Miss news website…not good. People actually call for her head in some of those posts. I cringe reading them in fear for all LGBT people in areas like that. I want to send a message to all of them…”WHAT THE FUCK ARE OU STILL DOING IN A PLACE LIKE THAT???” You’re better then that. Get out while you’re still able to breathe.
    If I were Constance, I would heavily consider and weigh the pro’s and con’s of going/not going. It is afterall, HER safety she has to worry about.
    She probably can’t even depend on the local law enforcement to protect her. They’re more then likely still KKKlan members.

    no, no, no. i’m sorry, but i don’t think constance + her gf should go to their prom.

    Anybody else thinks the speaker puts way too much stress on the word Leeesbian.

    I thought he put a lot of stress on the word Lesbian also…he said it somewhat disapprovingly! Although perhaps that’s just getting picky!
    Poor girl…I hope one day America will be a place where her (what will be) ex-classmates will look back at their own reactions with embarrasment.
