Constance McMillen's School Also Discriminated Against Trans Student

The Mississippi school that cancelled Constance McMillen's prom also suspended a transgender student, giving no explanation. Reports have emerged that Juin Baize, 16, was suspended within hours of his first day at Itwamba Agricultural High School. Baize was given a suspension note just hours into his first day at school. Kristy Bennet, legal director of the ACLU in Mississippi, said they would not be pursuing the case.
