    To think such an organisation needs to start up in liberal Hollywood, too liberate, free and recognise homosexuals in/of such a liberal place like Hollywood.

    What happend to Hollywood anyways, where did it all go so very wrong?

    Great sentiment, and I love his mom, but....

    He'd do himself a favor if, as an actor, he were more convincing playing himself.

    Would have been better shorter and looking directly into the camera. If this gets a few high-profile actors to come out and post, this could be very successful. In my opinion, have more of an impact than "It gets better."

    You're probably right though, when Lance Bass came out, I wanted to be hocking tomatoes at him!

    I mean, it's great to come out...and I knew he had his reasons for not coming out for so long.

    But then to hear him make a loud pronouncement that he's a SAG (Straight Acting Gay), and talk about how in high school he was well liked and popular, and took part in bullying the kids who were perceived to be gay...made me sick to my stomach! He didn't even come across as all that apologetic towards those whose lives he tormented to make his closet that much more comfortable!!!

    True...it happened when he was a teen...but still, I can't imagine owning up to that without also explaining that with maturity, it's something to be deeply sorrowful and ashamed of!

    I guess I should clarify: I'm "pro-actors coming out," and just a bit "anti-Lance Bass." ROFL
