Dan Savage is reporting that life at school has become quite tense for Constance McMillen after the School Board canceled the prom rather than allow her to bring a female date.
Mississippi ACLU legal director Kristy Bennett said school officials are trying to make a villain out of McMillen. Bennett said McMillen attended school today, but was "a little stressed out." She left early and said that it is pretty tense. A lot of students won'tlook her in the eye," she said.
Savage and some others are organizing an email campaign to persuade the School Board to reschedule the prom. If you are so inclined, here are some email addresses:
Superintendent Teresa McNeece
School Board Member Jackie Nichols
School Board Member Harold Martin
School Board Member Clara Brown
School Board Member Tony Wallace
