The tale of another prom

David Taffet of The Dallas Voice is reporting on another painful prom for a gay teen, only this time it's the school doing the right thing and the parents who are acting out of homophobia.

As we know, Constance McMillan had the support of her family when her school refused to allow her to attend the school prom.  When Derrick Martin (left) of Cochran, GA decided to attend the prom with his boyfriend, the school took no issue.  Administrators said that the only rule is that no date can be older than 21.  Derrick's parents, however, have thrown him out of the house.

One mother of a gay son sent flowers to the school in appreciation.  Other people have offered Derrick and his date dinners, a limo, and tuxes.
