A federal judge has ordered Mississippi's Itawamba County School District to pay the $81,000 in legal fees and expenses that Constance McMillen incurred after having to bring them to court for banning her from her high school's prom - all because she wanted to bring her girlfriend as a date!
As they should! We're so thrilled that justice has been served!
Discrimination and bigotry have no place in this country, and ESPECIALLY not in schools!
A well-deserved victory!
EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL.
