*NSYNC star Lance Bass came out back in 2006 and has now revealed that the decision cost him in the professional realm.
While his bandmates and fans were supportive of his decision to reveal his sexuality, the professional world wasn't quite so accommodating.
Bass said that he was about to close a few solo deals when he came out to PEOPLE.
During a radio interview, the singer said, "I definitely felt coming out really hurt pretty much all of the products I was working on at the time. They canceled a bunch of the stuff... and that really set me back for years... so I had to go back and redevelop tons of other stuff for TV and film."
What a shame! Sexuality and orientation should not affect anyone's professional endeavors.
But the good news is that Bass bounced back. He has enjoyed a successful radio show, too.
