Lance Bass: "Happy Anniversary to Me!!!"

Lance Bass:

Former boybander Lance Bass, who is currently seeing Brazilian model Pedro Andrade, blogs about celebrating the one-year anniversary of his coming out of the closet. Here’s his spiel:

“Happy Anniversary!!!!!….

TO ME!!!!!!!

So it was a year ago that I decided to let the world know who I really am… and I swear it has been the most amazing experience. Scary at times , but in the end the best thing I have ever done. I want to thank everyone that has been so supportive and showing that this world has and will continue to change in the right direction. With the election coming up, it is even more important that we stand up for what we believe in and be heard. Enviroment [sic], war, civil rights, education…. the list goes on and on. I encourage everyone to learn more this year about ALL the issues that need attention. Some of you will actively be heard and support some issues, and others will just be educated— in the end all that matters is we all are going to have a hand in changing this world for the better!

Also as an Anniversary gift for me …think about doing this….

If you are having trouble being yourself , and are scared to tell someone you are gay— find that loyal friend, family member, or even hotline and tell someone. All it takes is to tell one person and the ball starts rolling. You will get great advice and and be so much happier. Or, if you have always wanted to ask that family member or friend if they were gay.. do it now…. in a very positive and private way , tell them it is ok and you will always be there no matter what. Sometimes its easier for someone to just flat out ask you. To bulid the courage to say it sometimes takes years.

It’s 2007 people , there is no reason we should not be exactly who we want to be- sexual preference, profession, religion, etc. Just respect the fact that everyone is different and live your own lives the way you want! It’s good to be alive and we can do and achieve anything we want!

So go do something positive, nice, fun, or just laugh… it doesnt affect just you .. it catches on!

Have a good one!! LB”

    You go Lance!!! Be who you are!!!


    Stop spouting nonsense and keep your issues to yourself. God’s laws do not change because it is 2007. He is the same yesterday, today and forever.

    YOU are talking about GOD!?!

    first get rid of your stupid and harmful judgements, quit acting like “god” and then talk about god!

  • Anonymous

    I hope if any of my friends are still “in” that they take a chance. If it’s as liberating as people say you will free yourself. If anyone reacts badly it’s on them. God made all of us.All. GOOD LUCK!

    Lance, give Dudette [Zac] a call and help him out.

  • Pop Crunch

    Honesty is the best policy.

    I can’t believe he uses myspace though!

  • sami

    I am glad Lance is able to be himself. It would also be nice if people stopped judging others. I really wish that celebrities, who think people care what they say, would keep their liberal politics to themselves.

  • Kelly D

    What an amazing guy. He sounds so smart and sweet. Screw you bigots spouting that bs about gods laws. God loves everyone. The bible also says you can sell your daughter, can’t eat shellfish and can have slaves. Hello? Take your judgements elsewhere!

  • Ashley

    He came out YEAR ago? jeez it feels like it was only a few months ago….

  • wrong

    Birds of a feather flock together!

  • Mmmmm

    Good for him .. he should give Clay a call.

  • used up Lance

    He is a has-been. Does he even work? He goes from man to man. Now he is a motivational speaker for freeing yourself. What’s the hype about him?
    His looks are bland. I’m 4 gay rights and all but this dude does nada 4 me.

    Who the hell cares if he does “nada” for you? He doesn’t have to do anything for you, let alone work. And so what if he goes from man to man? Is that any different from what alot of heteros do? You claim to be for gay rights but you sound homophobic to me. I applaud him for sending out a positive message. And I’m not gay, but as you so eloquently put it, “I’m 4 gay rights.”

  • A Person

    Lance, you have just saved some person life – thank you for having a positive energy about being out.


  • Go gay people!!!

    Who cares who it came from. This is a positive message about being yourself and not changing for anyone else. And helping others. Gay people say that they know they are gay even when a young child, so it cannot be “social conditioning.” Even in the Middle Ages homosexuals were burned at the stake… this is human judgment. Why would God create something that He hates???

  • JiJi

    Loved what he said. Why do ppl have a problem with it? Like it or not, his words did reach some ppl whether you think he’s a has been or not. He’s been getting a lot of attention since he came out and he’s using that attention positively from what I see. He wants to help and he’s doing what he knows, and I applaud him for that.
    Never been a fan of his or the group or any boy band really. But I like what he said and I hope he speaks out more. He seems smart and likable.

  • Murr

    Oh Lance Bass, who says happy anniversary to themselves??… Haha, what a f*cktard

  • leonard

    lance you are amazing and i cant wait to get your book and I hope this relationship with pedro works out and he seems to be a nice guy. Good luck!
