Lance Bass: Queerty And Gay Media Should Aid, Educate, Not Attack LGBT Celebs

The first people to report on the story were The Advocate, Instinct, and Queerty, not any mainstream media. My community were the first ones to attack me. The Huffington Post is the only outlet that reached out immediately and suggested I write something to help educate. That to me is responsible journalism, and everyone should follow suit. I just believe there are better ways to handle the distribution of press and would appreciate it if the media, especially the gay media, could be more responsible in how they report a story.

– Lance Bass in HuffPo Gay Voices unequivocally apologizing for saying “trannies” on TV and chiding the gay media for pouncing on the mistakes of LGBTA celebrities rather highlighting their contributions to the LGBTA community.
