It's prom season, and the ACLU is ready with advice on same-sex dates
Prom season is in full swing, and the ACLU reports it is seeing an uptick in calls and emails from students whose schools have either tried to stop them from bringing same-sex dates or tried to enforce gender-stereotyped dress codes. "Both are illegal," says the ACLU. "As Deb Price of the Detroit News pointed out in her column today, the ACLU affiliates in both Ohio and Mississippi have recently gotten schools to back down from discriminatory prom policies." The ACLU LGBT Project has created a Prom Resources Page to help LGBT students.
