Native Mississippian Lance Bass has released a new documentary film exploring the battle on the part of primarily young LGBT people to bring gay civil rights and visibility to the Magnolia State – one of the two states statistician Nate Silver predicts will be the last to embrace LGBT equality.

WREG reports:

Constance McMillenThe idea for Bass’s new documentary, “Mississippi I Am,” was born when he became frustrated with the image Mississippi was getting as being anti-gay after Constance McMillen [pictured] wasn’t allowed to take her girlfriend to prom in 2010 in Itawamba County.

“The stories kept coming out in my home state and I was like, I need to figure out what to do about this. So I sent cameras down to see what the temperature really was,” said Bass.

Four years later, the short film is done and was released Tuesday on iTunes.

“Through this documentary, you see what it’s like to be a gay kid raised in Mississippi, and yes there are a lot of struggles, but in the end what’s great is the hope and the change that you’re seeing in the state,” said Bass.

Lance Bass and his fiancé Michael Turchin talk about their love for the state of Mississippi and changing hearts and minds in a new video for Southerns for the Freedom to Marry.

Says Bass:

"When we go out as a gay couple here in Mississippi. You don't feel what everyone says is going on down here in the South. People accept it so much better and they just see 'oh, that's cool. we like them together. They're really sweet.' We feel the love coming from them anyway, and the support. We just have to show them what being gay is. And that's being completely normal, and nothing different from that straight marriage over there."

After a 12 year hiatus, Lance Bass is back on the music scene with a new single “Walking on Air.” The 34-year-old former ‘N Sync singer is joined in the video by Anise K and Bella Blue.

Bass spoke to Billboard about why he wanted to make his return to music with this song:

"It's fun, good dance music and that's what appealed to me," Bass said. "It had this really cool almost Arabian sound to it with the sitar which I really love and I don't think it's used enough here in America, so that was very different to me and knew it would stand out."

Lance Bass Forgives TV's 'Bachelor', Still Thinks 'He's Cute'

Lance Bass forgives TV's Bachelor Juan Pablo Galavis for saying that gays are "perverted" and therefore a gay-themed version of The Bachelor would not set a "good example" for children, the Miami Herald reports:

Bass"I don't hate him at all. I still think he's cute...Of course it's disappointing, because you don't want someone who (you) actually love to have those thoughts.

Bass says Galavis was brainwashed by his Venezuelan culture:

"When you grow up in a place like that, you get brainwashed into thinking that way, you know, you can't help what you grow up with...I mean, I grew up in Mississippi, so I know how people can get brainwashed into thinking really, really awful things. So hopefully, he will learn from this and get educated."

Galavis has since apologized twice for his remarks and will be meeting with GLAAD and gay families.

Lance Bass has released "Walking on Air", his first new song in more than a decade, and the euro-style dance track is crowded with additional contributors including Snoop Dogg, Australian producer Anise K, and singer Bella Blue.

A different version of the track was actually first released in 2013.

Said Bass to E!: "For the last two years I've been listening to demos, just trying to figure out if I want to get back in the studio. I hadn't heard anything that resonated with me. But a couple of months ago, a track from Anise K landed in my lap from a friend of mine and he was like, 'I think this will be your first song."
