McMillen: I Was Sent to Fake Prom
By Advocate.com Editors

CONSTANCE MCMILLAN (GBGE) X390 | ADVOCATE.COM

To avoid Constance McMillen bringing a female date to her prom, the teen was sent to a "fake prom" while the rest of her class partied at a secret location at an event organized by parents.

McMillen tells The Advocate that a parent-organized prom happened behind her back — she and her date were sent to a Friday night event at a country club in Fulton, Miss., that attracted only five other students. Her school principal and teachers served as chaperones, but clearly there wasn't much to keep an eye on.

It just blows my mind, that in 2010, this shit happens.

Even with national media pointed at them, they do this. What type of people are these parents? The lesson the kids are learning. *shudder*. And you know she isn't the only gay teen in that town. The ones who would have felt safe to come out had this gone differently - this is just heart wrenching.
