“It’s crazy because I just came out seven, eight years ago, and I remember when I came out, half the world was just hating it,” Bass, 35, recalled to Us Weekly. “It was miserable at the time of how much hatred was poured out toward me. Then just a few years later, there’s a same-sex wedding on television that I’m involved with and there’s just an outpouring of love.”
