Lance Bass of 'N Sync reveals he's gay

NEW YORK - Lance Bass, band member of 'N Sync, says he's gay and in a "very stable" relationship with a reality show star. Bass, who formed 'N Sync with Justin Timberlake, JC Chasez, Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick, tells People magazine that he didn't earlier disclose his sexuality because he didn't want to affect the group's popularity.
Insert joke about the breaking of millions of teenybopper hearts.

If funny. The article says that he felt his co-band members sort of knew about his sexuality after he wouldn't hit on women like the rest of them. My first friend that came out to me sort of let me know the same way. Is that the benchmark for being gay or straight: harassing women in nightspots? Wait...oh yeah...obviously.

It's also suprised me that he says that although he's known he was gay since childhood he still was intimate with and even in love with females until he was 22. The social pressure to conform is really saddening.
