Navratilova wants Lance Bass to lead the gay parade

Navratilova wants Lance Bass to lead the gay parade
Washington, Aug 18

Lesbian tennis legend Martina Navratilova has written a letter to America's People magazine praising singer Lance Bass’ public declaration of his homosexuality.

Bass, who is a former 'N Sync star appeared on the cover of the publication last month, and had announced that he is gay and in a committed relationship with reality TV star Reichen Lehmkuhl.

"Lance Bass is a courageous young man. Coming out to your family and friends is hard enough; to do so to the world is a lot harder. I know, as I took this step more than 25 years ago", Contactmusic quoted her, as saying.

Apart from praising Bass, who had told People magazine that he doesn't want to become a poster child for gay rights, Navratilova further said that she urges him to make a stand for equal rights.

"So as our fight for equality continues, I will not be surprised to one day see Lance Bass marching with the rest of us, right there in the front row", she said.

But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams

Please make them both go away.
Not for being gay.

For being obnoxious.
Very obnoxious.

Lance Bass, who cares?
Martina, mullet days are over.
Move on please.

please

This can't last. This misery can't last. I must remember that and try to control myself. Nothing lasts really. Neither happiness nor despair. Not even life lasts very long. There'll come a time in the future when I shan't mind about this anymore, when I can look back and say quite peacefully and cheerfully how silly I was. No, no, I don't want that time to come ever. I want to remember every minute, always, always to the end of my days.

lance bass is so nasty looking

anyway, he only came out of the closet b/c pictures of him & his man were plastered on every internet gossip blog, he's certainly no gay hero

"It’s always been, ‘I wonder what she’s got, Sharapova?’, because I don’t see that she’s got something that special… Or do you know? Can you tell? What’s so exceptional about her?”

-- Legend, shortly before crushing Vulturepova

If his TV show doesn't do well I'm sure we'll see him there.

Mark Feehily of Westlife should lead the parade, he is much cuter and he looks more gay...And Westlife is now again hitting the charts.
