A young lesbian couple in Alabama have been told that they will now been allowed to attend school prom together. The women attend Alexandria High School in Calhoun County. On 30 January, Janizia Ross, 17, asked her girlfriend if she would attend the school prom as her date. Her girlfriend, Raven (who prefers not to give her surname), was performing in a school talent show. After she finished her performance at Alexandria High School, Ross got up on stage to ask her to the prom. This led to disciplinary action from the school. Officials promptly suspended Ross.
