It's Official

Lance Bass, the former 'N Sync heartthrob, reveals that he is gay, in an exclusive interview..

"I knew that I was in this popular band and I had four other guys' careers in my hand, and I knew that if I ever acted on it or even said (that I was gay), it would overpower everything," says Bass, referring to bandmates Joey Fatone, Chris Kirkpatrick, JC Chasez and Justin Timberlake.

"I didn’t know: Could that be the end of ’N Sync? So I had that weight on me of like, ‘Wow, if I ever let anyone know, it's bad.' So I just never did," he says speaking about his sexual orientation for the first time.

Now, after years of keeping his personal life private, the Mississippi-bred, Southern Baptist-reared Bass, 27, is publicly revealing what he first shared with his friends, then his shocked family. "He took years to really think about how he was going to tell everyone," says his close buddy Fatone, 29, who was the first 'N Sync bandmate to find out Bass is gay. "I back him up 100 percent." Adds Bass’s longtime pal, actress Christina Applegate: "I've always accepted him as who he is. It's about his own serenity at this point."

Having pursued acting, producing and – most memorably – space flight after ’N Sync went on hiatus in 2002, Bass now is looking ahead to new beginnings. He is in a "very stable" relationship with model-actor-Amazing Race winner Reichen Lehmkuhl, 32, and is developing an Odd Couple-inspired sitcom pilot with Fatone in which his character will be gay.

Mostly, though, he’s just enjoying the relief that comes with the culmination of a long, at times emotionally fraught journey. "The thing is, I’m not ashamed – that’s the one thing I want to say," he explains of his decision to come out. "I don't think it's wrong, I'm not devastated going through this. I'm more liberated and happy than I’ve been my whole life. I'm just happy."

As for why he's talking about this now Bass says, "The main reason I wanted to speak my mind was that (the rumors) really were 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 that I worry about."

--I love how People is acting like this is huge news! Blog readers/writers have known this for YEARS.

You Said

I think it's awful how the media acts like this is such big news... he's gay, get over it! I'm glad he "came out" in his own way though. Now the media can get back to reporting on Lindsay/Paris/Nicole/Suri..... such important things...

Thank you, Lawren! Next People will have the "breaking news" story that Anderson Cooper is gay.

Says: chuck at July 26, 2006 11:11 AM

Chuck, I love that you wrote that. I broke it to my mom that rumors have been swirling for ages that he is gay, and well, she just won't believe me. Ha.

Says: Lawren at July 26, 2006 12:33 PM

I didn't know he was gay, but then again I'm not surprised.

Interesting article. It is unfortunate that over the last decade, the travel industry has had to handle terrorism, SARS, tsunamis, bird flu virus, swine flu, and the first ever true global downturn. Through everything the industry has really proven to be sturdy, resilient and dynamic, locating new methods to deal with adversity. There are continually fresh complications and opportunities to which the field must again adapt and act in response.

An interesting discussion is definitely worth comment. I believe that you should write more about this issue, it may not be a taboo subject but typically folks dont talk about these subjects. To the next! Cheers!
