A band of celebrities (Green Day, musician Lance Bass and Iron Chef Cat Cora) are helping to pay for a student prom May 8 in Tupelo, Miss. The event also is receiving $20,000 from the American Humanist Organization. The prom queen, no doubt, will be Constance McMillen, a high school senior who challenged her school district’s rule banning same-sex dates at the prom, as well as girls in tuxedos. The school board voted to cancel the prom rather than to allow McMillen to attend, and an alternative prom was poorly attended.
