Lesbian student transfers out of district

Posted: Updated:

JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - The lesbian student at the center of a fight to take her girlfriend to the school prom has transferred out of the school district that turned down her request.

Constance McMillen now attends a high school in Jackson, about 180 miles away from Itawamba Agricultural High School in North Mississippi.

She would not say which school she attends, but she expects to graduate June 2nd.

Meanwhile, officials in Itawamba County are preparing for a demonstration at the district's Saturday graduation.

A fundamentalist church group said it is protesting parents who did not teach their children to condemn homosexuality.
