The Memphis Gay & Lesbian Community Center's "Prom for All" event is Saturday night! Hope you've got your tux or your dress ready.

The June 5th event at the Doubletree Hotel will feature guest of honor Constance McMillen, the 18-year-old Fulton, Mississippi high school student who made national headlines when the Itawamba County School District refused to allow her to bring her girlfriend to prom and wear a tuxedo.

The local prom, open to gay and straight couples (and even single folks!) ages 18 and up, is being held on the heels of McMillen's high school graduation. Couples of all orientations and ages will enjoy a traditional prom atmosphere, complete with prom photos, live music by Venus Mission, and a light buffet.

Tickets are $50 per person or $80 per couple. This is the largest fund-raiser of the year for the MGLCC, and the money raised will go toward the center's operating budget. For tickets, contact the MGLCC at 278-6422.
