Staff WriterAs if Lance Bass and his fiance, Michael Turchin, couldn't be any more awesome, they have just announced their wedding will be filmed for an E! Valentine's Day television special! The former 'Nsync singer announced his engagement last year and has been quite an advocate for the LGBTQ community since he came out as gay back in 2006.
Bass shared that, as a child, he would have loved to see a gay wedding on television. He said it would have made him feel like being gay is okay. "Never in my lifetime did I think that I'd be able to get married legally. It's just amazing how fast everything is going right now and I'm just honored to be able to share my wedding with the world. As a little gay kid growing up in Mississippi, I would have loved to have turned on the television and see that happen and say, 'Oh my gosh, there's nothing wrong with me and I can have that'." he told Gay Star News.
Lance also revealed his dream of a big wedding and that while his three year relationship with Michael probably won't change after they're married, it will feel more real to them once they've exchanged wedding vows.
There is currently no air date and Bass was not forthcoming with a wedding date. However, he assured sources that it would happen before the end of the year. We at Popwrapped are certainly very happy for the couple and can't wait to see their nuptials! Be sure to check back with us for more information about their wedding as it becomes available.
