GLAAD Awards: Miss. student Constance McMillen to be New York Pride Grand Marshall

Funny gal Wanda Sykes asked Constance McMillen, the young Mississippi high school student who successfully sued her high school for the right to bring her girlfriend to the prom, to present her award at the GLAAD Media Awards on Saturday (Apr. 17).

On the red carpet last night, Constance -- with NO 8  emblazoned on her cheek -- talked to The Dish Rag about being among so many supportive  -- and "famous people!" at the awards.

"It's very nice to get out of all hate," she explained. "All I did was stand up for what i thought was right."
