Last night, the 21st Annual GLAAD Media Awards were presented in Los Angeles.
Constance McMillen presented Wanda Sykes with the Stephen F. Kolzak Award. McMillen sued her rural Mississippi school district after it canceled prom she asked to attend with her girlfriend. She later appeared on The Wanda Sykes Show where the host invited her to the awards. Constance said on the red carpet: "All I did was stand up for what I believe in and what I was told what's right. I'm going to continue to do that."
