Lance Bass sponsors gay-friendly prom
BY GREG HERNANDEZ
There are some really awful people in this world and among them are those responsible for duping lesbian teen Constance McMillen into attending a fake prom in Mississippi recently.
It would be one thing if it were just kids but you have so-called adults involved in this act of homophobia and cruelty. But there are also plenty of good people in this world and former ‘N Sync member Lance Bass is one of them.
He will join celebrity chef Cat Cora and members of Green Day in sponsoring a gay-friendly prom on May 8.
The event is being organized by the Mississippi Safe Schools Coalition and is open to all students, regardless of sexual orientation. The American Humanist Association will also donate $20,000 for the inclusive prom.
The Itawamba School District refused to allow Constance to bring a same-sex date to her prom. After a U.S. district judge ruled that the school could not bar Constance and her date, the district canceled the prom and allowed parents host an off-site prom inviting everyone but McMillen and a handful of other students.
