A Marin County high school has extended a prom invitation to a Mississippi lesbian.

Students at Tamalpais High School in Mill Valley say they want Constance McMillen to have the chance to attend a prom.

Her own school district canceled their dance to avoid having to allow McMillen to attend wearing a tux, with her girlfriend.

The ACLU wanted to force the district to hold its prom, but a judge denied the request.

McMillen has not yet responded to the invite from Tamalpais High.
