    NB to the Organizers:

    Not for Nothing!! BUT it would have been a great gesture to have Chosen Cambridge City Hall as a starting point and lead an arm in arm toast all the way to the MA State Capital, where you might just recall it was at the Cambridge city Hall that the FIRST LEGAL Same Sex Marriage license was issued… Lastly, it was 10 yrs ago last month that MA BECAME THE FIRST STATE TO Officially Endorse SSM!!! I suspect an actual tribute and recognition of SSM was lost in the planning of this event…….

    It was a foregone conclusion that all the bitter, old queens would be out trolling Towleroad and trashing Lance Bass the minute that there was an article about him. He has already “happened” as he is a frequent guest commentator, host and reporter on various entertainment programmes. Most likely he is making more money by his doing that than any of the old “Think They Are Queens For A Day” will ever even dream of making. Furthermore, these events are meant to raise support for gay rights across the country, and that includes the South, an area where gay rights groups are working to build public support for human rights and marriage equality. Lance Bass is doing a great thing here, and he should be applauded for his doing so.

    To the haters: In addition to what RonCharles noted, Lance Bass has produced two documentaries that raise awareness of LBG issues.

    What have any of you done?

    I think Lance Bass has already happened. His net worth is very likely more than the combined total of everyone who will post on this article. You might not care about what he has accomplished, but wouldn’t that also be true of most entertainers? If you don’t think what he has accomplished counts as “happened,” I fear your bar may be a bit high.
