Disgusting! Parent Organizers Send Constance To Fake Prom

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayLegal MattersSad SadLGBT


These people should be absolutely ashamed of themselves.

Constance McMillen, the brave young woman who made national headlines when she fought her Mississippi school district over the decision to cancel prom because she wanted to bring her girlfriend as her date, lost the court battle to have her prom reinstated, but was promised a parent-sponsored event for she and her classmates.

We've learned however, that on the night of the alleged dance, the planners sent Constance, her date, and seven other students to a fake venue while the rest of the students celebrated at the real location.

We are honestly speechless.

How could anyone, especially the parents of other high school students, be capable of such cruelty to a teenage girl? And on such a unified front?

We've been told that Constance and her classmates present at the dance tried to make the best of the night, and we're not surprised.

We had the opportunity to meet Constance, as well as her wonderful father, and we can personally attest to the young woman's character. She was lovely, soft-spoken, and genuinely appreciative of all the support and interest so many had taken in her story. She just wanted her prom with the same rights as her fellow classmates, and to hear that so many thoughtless and cruel ADULTS could be capable of such bigotry breaks our heart.

We know that she'll manage to rise above all of this, but we hope Constance knows how many people stand behind her, and are grateful for her bravery and perseverance!

Stay strong, bb! There's a big world out there with lots of people who believe in you!!

  2. 2

  3. 3

    WTF? how could parents do that? and they say kids are cruel? this is horrible.

  4. 4

    That was a horrible and cruel thing to do!!! However, it is Mississippi. What can you expect?

  5. 5

    This isn't even worth all of the attention it's getting. Gahh.
    WE GET IT! Gays are more important. Yeah. Whatever.

  6. 6

    That is disgusting that someone would do that to her! I cannot believe that anyone could be capible of doing that to a yound girl.

  7. 7

    people like that suck…i feel for the girl. it's 2010..

  8. buck says – reply to this


    i'm sure she will decide to be straight in a few years and this story will be a non-event.

  9. 9

    SUE THEM! Take it to the Supreme Court, Constance. This is a violation of her constitutional rights.

  10. 10

    Brave young woman, my a**! The big p^ssy called the ACLU. Does a small school board in Mississippi want to deal with the ACLU? All this b&tch wants is publicity.

    Oh, by the way, Perez…let's talk about elephant rights!

  11. 11

    Karma will take care of those assholes

  12. 12

    Constance McMillen, the brave young woman who made national headlines..

    make that international.
    Europe loves you, Constance

  13. 13

    homosexuality is a sin against God. God loves homosexual, he loves evry human being, he is no respector of persons. he hates sin. please repent of your sins and and ask Jesus Christ in your heart. there will be a judgement day.repent before it's too late. God will help you through your problems wether you are a homosexual or a drug addict. he will give you the strengh to go through your weakness and struggles. just try him. study his word and pray without ceasing.

  14. 14

    She needs to move away from that small town bull shit ASAP!!! Come to gulf shores Alabama not too far away but a world of difference and you can still have that awesome Southern life style with out the DRAMA from old wrinkled up haters trying to relive there lives through there children. MISSIPPI SUX!!!!

  15. 15

    This is LOL funny, you have to give them credit Mario due to the fact that the likes of people of your ilk made such a big non issue of this…..you just like seeing your name on posts….this is a great payback. Those that attended the real celebration no doubt had a great time and didn't even think of Constance or the others at their "Soecial Event"…..take a hearty bow there douche bag you earned it

  16. 16

    If they sold her prom tickets, they they comspired to commit fraud.

  17. 17

    That is soooo messed up, but I believe it…she lives in the South…Fuck the South.

  18. 18

    you said your speechless? ..dont tease me piggy

  19. 19

    Re: backstreetboysarethebest – This cumming from someone who thinks the Backstreet boys are cool!!!! LAME!!!!!!!

  20. 20

    Good for the parents. This brat threw a tantrum and nearly ruined prom for her entire school, I can totally understand why the parents of the other students wouldn't want her around at the prom she forced them to pay for themselves. Constance wanted to get attention and get her 15 minutes of fame (from what I've read she isn't actually a lesbian, just a bi-curious attention whore) and now she's learning that you reap what you sow.

  21. 21

    This is sad. In both senses of that word.

  22. 22

    wait…wait…wait here you sit talking shit about the "adults" being mean to a younger girl Honey DONT YOU SIT THERE EVERY SINGLE DAY POKING FUN AND BEING MEAN TO YOUNGER CHILD STARS? I do feel bad for the girl though

  23. 23

    your link is not coming up and I cant find this anywhere else on the web/

  24. 24

    Truly disgusting. These adults are supposed to be role models but obviously they fail at that.
    Hang in there Constance, you're a strong girl that deserves to have equal rights as everyone one else! Much love from Canada

  25. 25

    This is horrible. Poor girl.

  26. 26

    this is sick…

    my heart goes out to Constance.

    stay strong bb!

  27. 27

    Not to be mean.. but how stupid can you be to show up at a fake location? Was the school super small and she had no other friends besides those 7 students? I mean thats a big secret for a school to have against her without her finding out where the prom was actually being held at.

  28. 28

    Re: backstreetboysarethebest
    Hate to say I agree…but the dramatics of this article is laughable.
    Sure it was a douchey move on behalf of some bigoted adults … but they didn't hang this girl in a tree and kick the shit out of her… The "people are mean to gays" bit is getting really really old…worse forms of discrimination than this happen every single day…

  29. 29

    I don't see it as cruel, Parasite. You're only capable of seeing it one way: absolute gay acceptance. Newsflash, slick: Not everyone accepts gay. Not everyone is comfortable with it. That the school officials, parents, and the other students (don't forget that they too had to be in on it) made the arrangements should speak volumes as to where the people in her community stand on the issue. She basically ruined the original event for all concerned by trying to insist on things being her way. Was that right or wrong? That's not relevant, really, because the results speak for themselves. She and her friends got a parent-sponsored event. If her classmates wanted her and her "date" to participate in theirs, it would've happened that way. She doesn't have the right to make everyone else feel uncomfortable. She got her event, and they got theirs. The moral of the story, Parasite, is that an in-your-face approach often backfires. And while it's true that she got some support, the fact is that she didn't have it where it counts … in her own back yard. Is it bigotry? Maybe.
    And stop using "we" and "our."

  30. 30

    This is why I consider myself spiritual. It makes me ill that these 'christians' apparently forgot the Love one another clause. They shoudl have stuck with the original cancellation, but to set up a fake event and everyone else is included? Disgusting.

  31. 31

    This is truly outrageous! SUE! Those bigots need to pay for this!

  32. 32

    I just checked the calendar to make sure it wasn't April Fool's Day. What kind of parents would do something like that? Oh I know the kind of morons that wouldn't allow a student to bring a SS partner to prom. It's beyond disgusting. I hope she, her gf and 7 friends sue them to hell and back

  33. 33

    that really is so so wrong. regardless of a single persons views or opinions, adults doing that to a teenage girl and her friends just couldn't be more wrong. it makes it even more baffling that these adults were parents themselves, and how they failed to show even the slightest bit of compassion for a young girl really is disgusting. i hope they're thoroughly, thoroughly ashamed of themselves, because they bloody well should be

  34. 34

    what is even sadder…. is perez and friends create fake ids to comment on his posts….. after he chased everyone away he needs to pay people to post on his site….

  35. 35

    "lost the court people to have her prom reinstated,"
    WTF? You need an editor.

  36. 36

    It is a tough world out there for anyone who is different and doesn't fit into what society thinks is the norm. At least this girl has the support of a community outside her southern white-trash town. Think of all the kids who suffer without the publicity and in silence and alone. Whoever concocted the "fake prom" idea is seriously messed up. Maybe Ellen and Portia could adopt her and get her the hell out of Mississippi.

  37. 37

    Re: backstreetboysarethebest – "The gays" are tired of hearing it even more than "the heteros" are. How about leave the gays alone, let them live their lives with the same rights as everyone else AND stop obsessing about ways to screw them over! Stop giving everyone things to talk about. Bigotry needs to be discussed!

  38. 38

    Which religious instituition is doing this?….it reads religious flakey to me….

  39. 39

    Those parents are disgusting, and they are raising the next generation of small-minded, intolerant rednecks. Cling to your anachronistic ideas, folks: the rest of the world is leaving you behind.
    Constance McMillen seems like such a lovely and courageous girl, and I predict a very bright future for her.

  40. 40

    What those parents did was completely DISGUSTING.

  41. 41

    I can't believe the cruelty of the parents. Think about what kind of example this is teaching the other kids!
    And for the record, this kind of "small-mindedness" is not a southern thing. I am from Alabama and know many gay and lesbians and do not believe in treating ANYONE with this kind of cruelty.
    One day this young lady will rise above all of those losers!!!

  42. 42

    Constance, Don't let ppl like this bring you down. What doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger. xoxo Kris…

  43. 43

    Re: candida albicans – Sorry but your thinking and analysis is simply wrong. Read the Bible and it's supporting texts in Greek and you will see God doesn't care who who sleep with. People/society made up the idea that homosexuality is sinful. Sex and love is beautiful - regardless.

  44. 44

    omg i cannot believe in this day and age things like this still happen. I grew up in New York and i could not even IMAGINE something like this happening here…there would be riots and protests in the streets! Mississippi is lucky they're so isolated and cut off from the rest of the world down there maybe they should all crawl back into the swamp they dragged themselves out of…clearly this young woman is growing up IN THE WRONG PLACE! move your ass outta there constance, it sounds like a real live freakshow down there…

  45. 45

    This is priceless…now we have a bunch a "South" or red state haters, grouping or discriminating against all Southerners. Hilarious. The post from amandadixon420 is especially funny. Alabama is better than Mississippi? Are the schools better? Because you can't spell worth sh*t, Amanda!

  46. 46

    I feel so bad for her :(
    those monsters should be ashamed!

  47. 47

    Re: Kenzieee
    How on earth does this mean they're better?
    They are fighting to have EQUAL rights. EQUAL - meaning they are currently being denied the basic rights as everyone else and you think the message they're sending is that they are 'better'? Are you insane or just stupid?

  48. 48

    why can't we get a body shot of this broad? is she fat or hot or what? thats all i care about

  49. 49

    Re: La Garse – she ruined the event? Because she doesn't like sucking cock like you do? you must have been raised by your grandparents. I suppose it is common to allow the colored folks to go to the dances now also in your area.
    get with the times you idiot

  50. 50

    Kenzieee No one said gays where more important just should have equal rights as everyone else. Get a clue.

    candida albicans Grow the fuck up. Really? If you feel that way it means you have hate so you should repent yourself for being a big walking disappointment to the lord for spreading blasphemy.

    No one stands in either one of your ways to say the dumb shit that spills from your mouths give people the same respect. Also Candida if you are gonna preach the lord please bitch learn the lord correctly.

  51. 51

    Re: candida albicans – "do not judge, or you too will be judged. for in the same way you judge others, you will be judged,and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you." these are the words of JESUS! YOU ARE NOT THE JUDGE OF WHAT IS RIGHT OR WRONG.. NOT YOU NOR, YOUR CHURCH. "why do you look at the spec of SAWDUST in your neighbors eye and pay no attention to the PLANK in your own eye?"

  52. 52

    Constance stay strong. Maybe one day you will be the Lesbian for the people. Move to the front of the bus and don't take no shit. BE YOU and BE PROUD.

  53. 53

    Being from Mississippi myself, I cannot believe the parents would show so much ignorance and hate towards a child. Unfortunately, she is from an area where a lot of the people are "backwoods." Constance is a brave young woman and will have a better life from her taking a stand…. She deserves better and those parents should ashamed and embarrased of their actions.

  54. 54

    Seems to me that she should have the exact same rights as EVERYONE else. The parents and school officials that let this happen are terrible people. Things like this are why I'm not religious. MAN wrote the bible - not God or Jesus. Can't people think for themselves and see right from wrong? Racists and bigots make me sick.

  55. 55

    Hope the other kids who attended the "secret prom" realize their credibility as human beings will be questioned for the rest of their lives. I certainly wouldn't hire somebody who were a part of such hideous display of unified hatred. Absolutely not.

  56. 56

    NO SYMPATHY. She tried ruining prom for 100's of other students…this is, once again, such a great example of how the majority will suffer the consequences for a minority.

  57. 57

    We southerners have a right to not want to turn into San Francisco. In San Francisco, they have "Gay Day" and "Bring Your Child to the Park Day" at the baseball stadium ON THE SAME DAY. And Perez went a long way to ruin compromise for situations like this prom. If you go against him, he cusses you out. You have to have his same opinion, or else. just ask Prejean. Then you have the gay parades. I saw a guy wearing nothing but a gum ball machine, where the candy came out of his crotch. We southerners do not like going this direction. You can verbally beat us up all you want but it won't change feelings and facts.

  58. 58

    It's easy to understand why everyone wants to view this as a indication of what Mississippi is like. Every state in this nation has the same problem. This could have happened in California–Prop 8, anyone?

    *Many* of us here think this bait-and-switch prom is a huge disgrace and have supported Constance from Day One. Try not to engage in the same stereotyping we all hate to see when directed against gays and lesbians.

    Perez, baby, I wish you'd remove the link and copy/paste the blog post (and the COMMENTS, which are local and overwhelmingly supportive of Ms. McMillen) to the site instead. It's a small, legal blog and can't handle this traffic!!

  59. 59

    email one of the boosters…remove the underscores on the front and back of addy

    Re: Douche Hunter – If you're a douche hunter, go look in the mirror and you'll find one, dumbass. My opinion is my opinion, and if you don't like it, suck it, asshole. Just because embracing gay is trendy doesn't mean everyone HAS to agree or go along with it. It's a shame you can't frame an intelligent response; it must surely suck to be you. Loser.

  61. 61

    How gross!hasn't anyone learned from the recent suicide of Pheobe Prince? These parents are bullies! They should be ASHAMED of themselves! Constance McMillen is such a strong girl, and by coming forward she has helped alot of kids in the same situation. Perez, why dont you use all the same time, effort and money you put into your birthday party and put on a prom for kids who arent allowed at there own prom. you could make a difference in alot of kids lives!

  62. 62

    This is disgusting. You've got ALOT of people standing behind you Constance! You know what? I'm not a lesbian, but all of this BS people are dishing out saying this goes against Christianity? GET REAL. God loves us all. NO MATTER WHO WE ARE! You think that God is approving of your HATE? Just stop it. I support you Constance. Take that shit to the supreme court.

  63. 63

    Hearing about this makes me wonder if it's 2010 or if that part of your country is still stuck in the 1950's. It's appalling to hear that adults are treating kids this way and leading with such bad example. I'm at loss for words and wonder when or if equal rights and tolerance will be part of our every day lives instead of something that is as rare as it is today. Shame on those people!

  64. 64

    Oh, those religious extremists. And they think THEY'LL get into heaven for that? Seriously? Idiots.

  65. 65

    Those Parents Should Rot In Hell!

  66. 66

    Re: poodlewithamohawk

    did wake up on the wrong side of the bed or are you always so nasty? she's a teenage girl and i can only assume that you're an adult.

    and who is she supposed to call?! i say she's a smart, brave girl for taking a stand — in mississippi, especially, even in 2010.

  67. 67

    Truly sad. I wish I could throw them their own Prom with some mayor acts…someone like Lady Gaga. Come on Perez..think of something nice to do for her and her friends….. Ellen did …

  68. 68

    Re: danger danger – I'm not a bible thumper, and I think it's pathetic for people to hide behind it when discussing issues. But here's what the book says about homosexuality: Lev. 18:22, "You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination." Lev. 20:13, "If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. Their bloodguiltness is upon them." 1 Cor. 6:9-10, "Or do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, shall inherit the kingdom of God." Now you have scripture with which to argue the point with candida. Considering how many people on the planet fall into the forbidden categories, we're all screwed. Not just homosexuals.

  69. 69

    P.S. Living in the south has nothing to do with this, we're not all uneducated hicks down here. (Although, there are quite a few of uneducated hicks running around…) Meh, why bother. I'm pretty much fed up with all of the prejudice down here anyways. Might as well drop out of college and shoot out a baby.

  70. 70

    I don't know, it's all kind of funny to me.

  71. 71

    Re: poodlewithamohawk – Just wondering ..what does she want publicity for? Is she selling something? just curious how you came to that conclusion.

  72. 72

    These "parents" are pure redneck trash.

  73. 73

    Re: buck

    Let me know when you decide to start sucking cock.

  74. 74

    Perez, would you care as much if it were a black kid being discriminated against?

  75. 75

    Re: Renfamous

    You are a stupid smelly cun*t.

  76. 76

    You've got to understand that when you deal with homophobes you are basically dealing with a bunch of neanderthals who are unwilling to evolve. We need to step over, through and around them to move on to the next level in human rights. They need be left back in the last century where to belong. Evolve, die, or get the fuck out of the way cave people……

  77. 77

    Re: CheerJamez – Duh genius….she has no friends left in school since the F..ucking prom was canceled and the school singled her out as the reason why the prom was a no go.

  78. 78

    Re: La Garse

    Shut the fuck up, cun*t.

  79. 79

    I think a bunch of wealthy celebrities should step up and give her the prom she dreamed of — and better. Invite her and her friends to Hollywood or wherever and give them an amazing party. This is the best way to let her know that good things come when you stay strong and stick up for what you believe in and stay true to yourself. AND it's the best way for any kids and parents who were in on the deception to see that their pathetic little brains earned them a pathetic little party. I just don't understand why no one from the gay community (Perez) has stepped in to make sure this girl got her prom.

  80. 80

    to the confused: do not judge simply means to deal with your sins first before making someonw aware of theirs. some individuals love to criticize others when they themselves do the same.
    IF someone rapes a woman or a child, what do u call such a perosn. a rapist right. now is that judging. yes and it is a corredt judgement. if someone steals your money or murders a person. they are a thief or a murderer right. or i'm i judging such a person by calling them a muderer.

    the bible states the homosexuality is an abormination. it is somthing to be hated. it is unnatural for a man to lie with another man. now tell me which bible you are reading which states differently.

  81. 81

    Re: Kenzieee

    You must be the stupidest commentator in Perez history! You wrote "WE GET IT! Gays are more important. Yeah. Whatever."

    How on earth would you get "gays are more important" out of this story? The straight kids get the prom and the gay kids get treated like second class humans here. It's the straight kids who are being treated as more important!

    YOU should have your human rights taken away for being such an idiot!

  82. 82

    this is where kids become bullies……from their idiot parents!!!!! where is the school board in this….where is government……..who is standing behind her???

  83. 83


  84. 84

    Is this story valid? I haven't found reference to it elsewhere. Surely it would be a big ticket news item considering the outrage at the initial story.

  85. 85

    It's 2010.
    Regardless of what it is, I thought we were past the whole
    "Hate 'em even if they're just existing" thing
    i.e. black people
    we got past that!

  86. Celt says – reply to this


    Re: JonzeyWTF
    Don't be so naive. She didn't try to ruin prom…her school board did. Is there a policy against being gay in high school? Not the last time I checked. This is the school boards fault and you know what? If it wasn't for people like Constance who have the courage to stand up for themselves, it's very possible that women would still have next to no rights and be unable to vote. Don't take for granted the fact that if it wasn't for people like this, you probably wouldn't have as much as you have in your life right now.

  87. 87

    We were never allowed to bring a member of the same sex to our prom, or any school dance. My friends who wanted to bring a SS partner to prom were denied that, even though they were both straight, and they were only good friends, but it wasn't allowed. It's disgusting how we can discriminate against it, but that's kinda the way it is. Good for her, for standing up for herself, but how she couldn't have seen this coming is beyond me. Why not just go out and do something for yourself the night of the prom, do something more enjoyable. Proms suck anyways.

  88. 88

    You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination. (NKJ, Leviticus 18:22)

    If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them. (NKJ, Leviticus 20:13)

  89. chlyn says – reply to this


    How did she "ruin prom"? She wasn't the one who cancelled prom; the school administration cancelled it because they didn't want the publicity.

  90. 90

    Horrible! And they wonder where kids learn to become bullies??!!! How could these parents be so devious and cruel! I guess we're lucky they did not lynch or torture Constance and her friends at the fake location-at least Mississippi is making SOME progress!

  91. 91


  92. 92

    Not one credible news org is reporting this. It is only being blogged about. Wait and hold judgement until the facts are in. I bet that this is totally fabricated. Besides, so what if someone has a private prom party and did not invite her. Well boo hoo. Now suddenly she HAS to be invited to EVERY party in town?? WTF. If this were a true story, If she were so well loved in the town, wouldn't at least one friend from school have squeeled about the party? Just one person let the cat out of the bag??? Either this is FAKE or she is really that hated by EVERYONE in school.

  93. 93

    OMG this is absolutely horrifying. I sure hope Ellen gets a hold of this and HUMILIATES the fuck out of the parents.

  94. 94

    No one is saying "gays" are more important…the whole movement is about equality. I really am surprised at the reactions - I will be the first one to admit Perez annoys the crap out of me 90% of the time and is nearly always overly-dramatic but this is different in my opinion. I saw one person say that you shouldn't expect "absolute acceptance" that some people just don't agree with it and therefore its okay to treat someone like this? Would you say that to a black person? That they simply cannot expect "absolute acceptance" therefore it's okay to segregate them from school functions? I hope not, but judging from people's words it wouldn't be surprising. I guess it just goes to show that most (but not ALL) people from the south are just stuck back in time, in their own little world. Come out into the REAL world Constance, it's not nicer but you WILL find those around you that will support and love you.

  95. 95

    Re: Kenzieee – No one said they were more important. But they are human just like the rest of us. You on the other hand aren't.

  97. 97

    Re: candida albicans – honey buns, read your bible again…i believe that was back in the old testament…do you still kill animals and burn them on the alter in order for God to forgive your sins too???? Wow, cool!

  98. 98

    This is so disturbing.
    Those parents should be shot.
    This story actually made me cry.

  99. 99

    I didn't get to go to prom b/c I am gay. I also got kicked out of my parents home and had NOBODY to turn to (years and years ago), so I lived on the street for a while.

    I tried to commit suicide the night of MY prom. That's what hate does to humans. Anyone who hates gays or thinks they are less human TO ANY DEGREE b/c they are gay are murderers in my eyes. Bullycyde is a real thing people.
