Glamour Magazine Names Constance McMillen Woman of the Year

Constance McMillen, who made national headlines when she fought back after being baneed from taking her girlfriend to her Mississippi high school’s prom, has been named one of the women of the year by Glamour magazine.

McMillen told Glamour: ‘I was raised to always be proud of who you are.” In the issue, Glamour also spoke with Melissa Etheridge, who hailed McMillen as well, saying, “she stood up and said, ‘This is who I am.’ When someone does that, it changes the world. It gives hope.”

Unsurprisingly, pre-production is underway on a TV movie about McMillen’s prom ordeal.
