When a Mississppi school cancelled prom rather than allow a lesbian student attend with her girlfriend, I was mortified. But when Constance McMillen chose to fight instead of roll over, I cheered.
And today I’m cheering even louder.

No matter what your opinion is on homosexuality, you have to commend this teen for her strength to fight for her rights. You go girl. We here at Mel-O-Drama give you 2 thumbs up with an extra dose of sparkle!
