Constance wanted to take her girlfriend Minerva to the prom at at Itawamba County Agricultural High School in Fulton, Mississippi. She hoped to wear a tux, too.

That’s when the ACLU got involved, and sent the school board a memo saying they were violation Constance’s civil rights by barring her from the prom.
