“No one in particular. It just started getting written about…NY Post’s Page Six picks it up…it just kind of trickles,” Lance said. And did Lance’s mom really learn he was gay from reading Page Six?
“Yeah, basically, yeah. It was just a question she had to my sister, actually, was the one who had to tell her,” Lance revealed/ Lance also opened up about how his People Magazine outing came to be.
“They contacted me,” he explained.
And as for the cover with the headline “I’m Gay,” Lance replied that he had no control over that.
“I thought they did a great job with it and they did. It was great. I feel, you know, there’s a great weight lifted off,” Lance added.Long removed from the days of *NSYNC, Lance is currently working on a book.
“Experience is everything with *NSYNC, all my experience with space travel and Russia and the whole coming out thing. I have a lot to say so I decided to go ahead and start writing it down.”
