I don’t think there is any need here to rehash the whole Constance McMillen prom drama here in this post. You all know the story.
But I have to mention it because it the basis for this column on Salon.com titled “The night I ditched my gay prom date,” and I am encouraging everyone to go read it. It looks at the whole prom drama from a slightly different angle and makes for an interesting read.
And besides, it has one of the best lines I have ever heard, right at the very end: “What the truly cool kids know is that it’s always better to dance alone than to sway in time with a roomful of bigots.”
