Lance Bass talks to GSN about his upcoming wedding which will also be an E! TV special

Lance Bass is looking forward to getting married to actor Michael Turchin and sharing the ceremony with the world.

The former ‘N Sync band member tells Gay Star News there is no firm date set yet for the ceremony but he knows it will happen before the end of the year.

‘We’re filming it for an E! wedding special. It will probably air around Valentine’s Day so it has to be before Valentine’s Day I know that,’ he explained before hosting the GMCLA Voice Awards in Las Angeles over the weekend.

Bass explains why he is happy to have the wedding be a television special on the network that brought viewers Kim Kardashian’s much-hyped wedding to Kris Humphries which was followed by a 72-day marriage.

‘Never in my lifetime did I think that I’d be able to get married legally. It’s just amazing how fast everything is going right now and I’m just honored to be able to share my wedding with the world. As a little gay kid growing up in Mississippi, I would have loved to have turned on the television and see that happen and say, "Oh my gosh, there’s nothing wrong with me and I can have that."’

Bass admits that he always dreamed of one day getting married and having a big wedding but he did not allow himself to believe he would be standing across from another groom on that day.

‘Growing up in the South, all you think about is family and who you were going to marry. At that time, of course, I was kidding myself that I was going to marry a girl and I always dreamed of that wedding and starting a family.’

Since announcing his engagement to Turchin last year, Bass says their three-year relationship has not really changed.

‘I think it’s going to be really different after we walk down the aisle – I think there’s something about that that’s going to make it so real to us. There’s probably going to be a lot of tears.’
