  • A boy band. A personal experience. Through it all, Lance Bass is very talented. And then he reveals hes gay He is still a person. And i think that if we embrace that, than we will realize how special he is for coming out of the closet. He was mature to.moreless

    A boy band formed in the 90s known as Nsync.Thats how Lance Bass got his name. The band went their separate way, and he went his. In August 2006, Lance told people magazine that he was gay and was dating an Amazing Race winner from season two. That was his first public gay romance. He is now in another relationship with another man, a supermodel. And it reminds me of something i went through when i came out......And maybe, just maybe, we could be a little more accepting of others, and there differences. And if we do that, than we will be heroes everywheremoreless
