Miss. Lesbian Teen Gets Second Chance at Soiree

Thursday, 08 Apr 2010 02:16 PM

A lesbian high school student is getting a second chance to don a tuxedo and dance after she sued her Mississippi school over a ban on same-sex prom dates.

Constance McMillen plans to attend an anniversary soiree that the National Center for Lesbian Rights will host May 1 in San Francisco. Center Executive Director Kate Kendell said the event often is referred to as the "lesbian prom." The advocacy group is paying for McMillen's travel.

Last week, a private prom took place to replace one the Itawamba County school district canceled rather than let McMillen wear a tuxedo and bring her girlfriend. McMillen was among seven students who showed up.

She said she was disappointed that her schoolmates partied at another location.
