Green Day is joining a group to help support a "Second Chance Prom" after a school district in Mississippi cancelled their prom because a lesbian student wanted to go to the event with her girlfriend.

You can read about the whole situation on this press release from the ACLU.

"McMillen said that she plans to attend the "private" prom, but has also long planned to attend the Mississippi Safe Schools Coalition's Second Chance Prom, to be held Saturday, May 8 in Tupelo. That event, sponsored by Green Day,, Iron Chef Cat Cora, and Lance Bass, among others, will be open to all LGBT students in the state, as well as straight students who are LGBT-supportive."
