the tears when she was a guest at her friend's blessing ceremony and so used gay couples in the video for
her single 'Raise Your Glass'. She says, "I threw my best friend's wedding in my backyard. She is gay and

A big congratulations to star of Top Gun and The Accused
Kelly McGillis who married her partner Melanie Leis in a
civil union. The marriage between the lesbian actress, 53,
and Leis, 42, was held in a municipal court in New Jersey

The US is developing a TV movie about the lesbian teenager
who made national news after her high school banned
her from the prom. Constance McMillen, an 18-year-old
student from Mississippi, challenged the local school board
for its rules that prevented her from bringing her girlfriend and
wearing a tuxedo. The school ultimately canceled the April 2
prom after McMillen's request. The American Civil Liberties
Union successfully sued the school on McMillen's behalf, and
she was awarded a $35,000 settlement. In addition, Ellen
DeGeneres donated $30,000 toward McMillen's college
fund. Of cials, however, did not admit to any wrongdoing in
their offer. The case drew nationwide attention, turning the
teen into an overnight gay rights celebrity. She served as a
grand marshal for New York's Gay Pride Parade.
"You were at the height of your
fame, and you came out, that just
blazed a trail for me. ... It made it so
much easier for me, what you did."
