Constance McMillen may not be able to go to her Mississippi high school's prom next week, but students in Mill Valley, Calif., are rolling out the red carpet for her.
Sarah Schwartz, a senior at Tamalpais High School, sent McMillen and her girlfriend an invitation to her prom.
"Being in my senior year, I know how important it is to have a prom," Schwartz told the Marin Independent Journal. "To have that taken away because the people around you don't accept you didn't feel fair at all. I felt I needed to do something."
The Tamalpais High School prom will be held May 16. McMillen has yet to respond to the invite. Her school canceled its prom rather than let her bring her girlfriend, and she is not invited to a private alternative prom.
