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.
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!
