When 18-year-old Constance McMillen asked to take her lesbian girlfriend to the high school prom, her Mississippi school canceled the dance. McMillen sued and won, but the court didn’t force the school to reschedule the prom. Instead, the tuxedo-clad girl was invited to a “private prom” chaperoned by school officials. Only seven students — including McMillen and two friends — went to the alternative prom. Most of McMillen’s classmate were at another private prom to which she was not invited.
