Which Backstreet Boy Is a 'Fag Hag'?

By: Brandon Voss

Statistically speaking, each boy band probably has at least one gay member, right, Lance Bass? Not so fast, says A.J. McLean of the Backstreet Boys.

"Everyone always says, 'When you look at a boy band, one of them has to be gay,'" A.J. tells Pride Source. "No, they don't. Instead of me being gay, I'm the fag hag."

The 35-year-old married dad with the rockin' '90s shirtless bod also opens up in the new interview about the group's loyal gay fans: “There's one guy named Matt and he's a big, big Nick Carter fan. He's this older gentleman from Tampa and he's gay, and he's been following us during this whole tour from China to Japan and now through the U.S. I think he really hopes that Nick might have a little bit of gay." Yeah, join the club, Matt.

It's not the first time A.J.'s given gays a shout-out. Talking about BSB's gay-inclusive “In a World Like This" video last month, he said, "Marriage equality is an ongoing issue for years. BSB wants to show our support for the LGBT community and we believe that two people of the same sex should have the right to get married."

By the way, are we cool with the term "fag hag" when it's used by clueless yet loving straight dudes?
