An 18-year-old lesbian high school student is challenging a Mississippi school district policy that says no same-sex date at the senior prom. Constance McMillen has enlisted the help of the American Civil Liberties Union after the district refused to let McMillen and her girlfriend arrive as a couple at the April 2 prom. District officials also denied McMillen’s request to wear a tuxedo. At issue is a memo issued to the Itawamba County high school students that laid out the criteria for bringing a date to the prom, and one requirement was that the person must be of the opposite sex.
