Benefit concert planned for lesbian teen in N.Y.

By NEMS Daily Journal

JACKSON – A benefit concert is planned this month in Woodstock, N.Y., for Constance McMillen, the lesbian teenager who sued her school district over its policy banning same-sex prom dates.
Rock singer Ronnie Spector will headline the June 25 concert at Bearsville Theater in Woodstock, and all proceeds will go to McMillen’s college education fund and the ACLU Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender and AIDS Project.
McMillen filed suit in March against the Itawamba County School District when a school prom was canceled after she asked to bring her girlfriend and wear a tuxedo.
