Summary
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. From a lesbian who chooses home-schooling to avoid constant bullying, to a gay boy who wants to join the Marines and serve his country, queer Mississippians share their courageous stories in this heartfelt 46 minute documentary. Produced by Lance Bass and Michael Huffington, Mississippi, I Am examines the relatively new battle on the part of primarily young LGBT people to bring gay civil rights and visibility out in the open and beyond division
