This deeply saddens us.
U.S. District Judge Glen H. Davidson has ruled in favor of the Itawamba County School District's decision to cancel the High School prom because of Constance McMillen's request to bring her girlfriend as a date.
In his 12-page order, he claims McMillen failed to show that granting the injuction would serve the public interest.
We suppose equal rights just aren't that big a priority for some people!
Hold your head up high, Constance! You have a lot of people sharing your pain and standing 100% behind you all over the country.
EQUAL RIGHTS FOR EVERYONE!
