Constance McMillen lives in a wicked little town. After being told by school officials that she couldn’t go gay to her prom, Constance sued and won the right to simply wear a tux and bring her girlfriend to the dance.
In a plot stolen right out of a John Hughes film, the school retaliated by staging a fake prom to lure Constance, her date and seven special needs students while the rest of the class held a secret prom at a remote location. Even worse, Molly Ringwald wasn’t there to save the day, and Long Duk Dong was long gone.
Good thing Constance didn’t have any telekinetic powers! Photos of the bigoted secret prom were posted online which included horrible tacky tuxedos and allegedly straight girls making out with each other.
On today’s show blogger and activist Phil Reese joins us to take a look at the bigot’s prom and all the hot news stories. Phil joins the Feast of Fun as politics and activism contributor, so be sure to say hi on the site and give him a warm welcome!
