I'm not surprised at all. I'm glad he can free himself now, it must have been really difficult to keep such a huge part of his identity secret.

i was a little surprised by it actually... but it was probably a good move on his part to wait all this time considering the thousands of teeny boppers that were probably in love with him. i'm glad he feels comfortable enough now though to come out

i linked to the story in the really bizarre "U2 and Sexuality" thread in FYM.

good for Lance. i thought all of his comments in what little blurps i've read have been very positive and affirming.

and i'll add my voice to the chorus of those saying, "can i get a great big 'duh'!?!?"

Can't say I'm super surprised by this...any chance of him admitting that he's intellectually challenged as well?

My friend Justin is really good friends with him, and he has known for a long time, but he said Lance has been gearing up to come out for months.

As soon as I heard this news I thought about you, DMP, since you had mentioned your buddy being friends with Lance. It doesn't faze me in any way nor does it shock me. I am happy that Lance seems to be content with the news being made public (like it should make any difference to anyone else though!) Good for him, I hope he really is as happy and content as he is saying.

I wonder when the other guys in n*sync found out.

The link to the article was one of the first emails I got today. For a minute I thought we were all 19 again.

Lance Bass out of the closet.

From Perezhilton.com:


On Why He Came Out Now
- The main reason I wanted to speak my mind was that [the rumors] were really starting to affect my daily life. Now it feels like it's on my terms. I'm at peace with my family, my friends, myself and God, so there's really nothing else I worry about."

On When He Knew He Was Gay
- "I've known my whole life. I always knew and dealt with it; it's nothing that was confusing to me. I told myself, 'This is what you are. This is the way you were born.'"

On His Past Relationships With Women
- I love women. I've definitely, you know, been with women. And I've had great relationships with them where I was definitely in love. It's just I grew to a point where deep inside I knew that I could never truly have a relationship with a woman. I don't know if they ever suspected. It was never brought up. And it was so easy, especially being on the road, because you never got to spend much time together."

On His Bandmates
- Some of the guys of course suspected because we were like brothers, so when you're with someone that much, they're like 'Why aren't you hitting on women all the time and acting like a rock star?' Because I was a good Christian boy, that's why.

On How His Mom Found Out
- The worst part about it was my mom found out not from me. She found out on the Internet, and that's what just killed me. She's read an article about the rumors and stuff and she Googled and found all these things.

On His Christianity
- I still go to church. I'm still Christian. I was not raised in a Christian church to hate people. I was taught to love people and accept people. I know what I believe.

On Dating Reichen
- "I'm dating this person, which is very new and I'm loving it. We're just taking it one day at a time, and slow, and very supportive."

On Kids
- "I'm a family guy, so I would love to have a family. I definitely want to have my own but I also want to adopt for sure. I think it's very important to find these kids homes."

On Being Gay
- "I want people to take from this that being gay is a norm. People always say, 'Are you gay?' and i say, 'No, I'm also gay." It's one of the many things that make me up. I was in a boy band, I'm used to people talking about me. It's the people around me that I don't want it to affect. But just seeing how my family has reacted, and everyone else, it just makes me so happy."
