This is wonderful!

Constance McMillen, the lesbian teenager who touched our hearts with her bravery and perserverence after she fought her Mississippi school district for banning her from her High School's prom because she wanted to bring her girlfriend as her date, will soon be the subject of a film, set to premiere on ABC Family!

The project, which is still apparently in early stages of development, will be written and directed by John Gray and produced by Craig Zadan and Neil Meron.

Amazing!

Constance is truly a remarkable young woman, and her story is such an inspiring one, so we look forward to seeing how it's adapted for the film! We sincerely hope it does her justice!

    I feel for the girl, but a movie? Come on.



  2. 2

    It's called "Carrie. The revenge of the bush licker"

    She really is an amazing girl. In a time when so many gay people are caving into bullying to the extent that death is the preferable option, it's inspiring to see somebody willing to stand up for themselves, their rights, and the gay community as a whole. :)

    Wonderful, another whiney "ooh look at me I'm a victim" movie. Just get over it and move on with your life. Of course, they probably will make this movie and get somebody attractive to play the lead. If they use Beth Ditto to play her role it would be a lot more realistic.

    It's lame how Perez uses the words "hero" and "survivor" so loosely.

    ROFL oh come the F on with the whole "SO BRAVE" stuff..She came out of the closet..she didn't run into a burning building to save a kitten/puppy/baby



  12. 12

    Cry Baby!

    Umm.. I think she's hardly inspirational. I'm assuming everyone already knew she had a girlfriend, so the only reason some big faculty backlash would actually happen as told in the story was if she was going around the teachers bragging about being a lesbian and bringing her girlfriend to prom for shock value. Which, let's face it, teenagers tend to do. I don't really care either way if she's gay or straight, but if you act out in those ways for attention chances are you'll get it and it won't be good.

    wow slow. afterellen had this story up days ago!

    Also people, its not going to be a big movie, it says made for tv!!



  15. 15

    It wasn't just because she couldn't bring her girlfriend, they told her she also couldn't wear a tuxedo!
    Come to find out, she never took her "girlfriend" or wore a tux to the prom she was given. She went to with a different girl and wore a dress and her fight against the school was for the opposite? Sounds fishy to me.
    She even moved and didn't finish school there. She wanted attention and then milked it way too long!
    A movie for this girl is ridiculous!

    OHH Paahhleaes, this little plumper will finally find a boy that actually likes her and he'll blow a hot load on her chest and her fat arse will forget all about that lesbo crap in 2 seconds, and then he'll kick her arse into the kitchen where she belongs.



  17. 17

    wow, this a little overboard don't you think? maybe this is why so many people have a problem with gays because any little incident is made into a huge deal!



  18. 18

    Re: darthschwartz – That's like saying, "I can't wait until this Jewish fad ends." Ignorant!
