In 2006, ‘NSync’s Lance Bass came out publicly as gay. Once the “most beloved son” of his home state of Mississippi, Bass was instantly rejected and his hopes that Mississippi could ever embrace change were seemingly dashed.
Four years later, Mississippi teen Constance McMillen made national headlines when she sued her school for denying her the right to go to prom with her girlfriend. Though only a few years had passed, something was shifting in one of the most socially conservative places in the United States.
Produced by Lance Bass and Michael Huffington, Mississippi: I Am examines the relatively new battle on the part of primarily young queer people to bring LGBT civil rights and visibility out in the open and beyond division.
Admission is free, but there’s limited capacity. Arrive early to ensure admission.
