Target, practically everyone’s favorite discount retail store, is headquartered in Minnesota, the land of 10,000 lakes.

Constance McMillen finally attended her senior prom Friday at a country club in Fulton, Miss. But the 18-year-old lesbian who has been in the news says she was duped into attending a “fake prom” while her classmates — with the help of parents — secretly partied elsewhere.

“They had two proms and I was only invited to one of them,” McMillen told The Advocate, a national gay-and-lesbian publication. “The one that I went to had seven people there, and everyone went to the other one I wasn’t invited to.”

Last month, the Itawamba County School District refused to allow McMillen to bring a female date to her high school prom and then canceled the event. She went to federal court, and ajudge ruled the district had violated her civil rights. But he did not order the district to hold the prom, because a parent-sponsored event was being scheduled away from the school. McMillen said organizers would not give her details, finally telling her to go to the country club Friday night.

Besides McMillen and her date, the other attendees included two students with learning difficulties.

“They had the time of their lives,” McMillen told The Advocate. “That’s the one good thing that come out of this, [these kids] didn’t have to worry about people making fun of them.”
