Sykes Interviews Lesbian Barred From Prom


THE WANDA SYKES SHOW X390 (FOX) | ADVOCATE.COM

Constance McMillen, the 18-year-old Mississippi student who sued her high school after the school canceled prom rather than let McMillen take her girlfriend to the dance, was interviewed Saturday night on The Wanda Sykes Show. During the interview Sykes invited McMillen to Los Angeles in April so that McMillen could attend the GLAAD Awards, where Sykes is being honored.

You can see a full video of the show here. McMillan's interview is about five minutes into the episode.

Meanwhile, Rod McCullom of the blog Rod 2.0 reports that McMillen has posted a video message for all her supporters and the 200,000-plus people of the Facebook group Let Constance Take Her Girlfriend to Prom. See that video below.

    You're an amazing young woman and you make all of us in the lgbt community proud. It's good to see a young person who is proud of who she is and is standing up for her rights and what she believes in. It certainly can't be easy for you but try to keep in mind that you have millions of people, gay and straight in your corner. Best of luck to you and stay strong.
