Another WIN For Constance McMillen!

Excellent!

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!

Congratulations, bb!

A well-deserved victory!

EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL.

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!

Good for her!

Constance McMillen is being paid $35,000 in damages from the Fulton, Mississippi school district after they discriminated against her when she wanted to bring her girlfriend to prom.

The school district has also agreed to adopt a policy banning discrimination based on sexual orientation.

Constance says:

"I'm so glad this is all over. I won't ever get my prom back, but it's worth it if it changes things at my school."

Hear, hear!
