My People magazine was in the mail when I got home today, and I just finished reading the article. I have to say, I was really impressed. When NSync was big, I can't say that Lance ever really impressed me for much of anything. But I give him a lot of credit for giving a very honest, candid, but not famewhorish interview to People.
He did a great job I thought of humanizing a coming out story -- of saying "being gay is one thing that I am - but it's not the single way you should know me anymore.". He also did a great job of conveying some of the hardships he's faced ... the fear of rejection from his family, the joy of being assured by their love, the hurt that "is he gay" gossip mongering brought him. All in all, I was really impressed with his self-confidence. He deserves a big pat on the back for the way he handled telling his story.
