Mississippi school cancels prom to prevent lesbian student from bringing a date
School officials at Itawamba Agricultural High School in Fulton, Mississippi have found themselves amid controversy after sending a letter home to students telling them that their prom dates must be of the opposite sex.
One student, Constance McMillen, objected and expressed the desire to bring her girlfriend to the prom. Instead of allowing McMillen and her date attend the prom, the school canceled the prom.
The American Civil Liberties Union has gotten involved and has sued the school district.
I want to know if this could happen in Maryland. Are there any policies -- written or unspoken -- that prevent LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) students from attending prom?
