Pop star Lance Bass married his Miami Beach boyfriend Michael Turchin on Dec. 20 in Los Angeles, 2½ weeks before same-sex marriage became legal in Florida. Thursday morning, the newlyweds had a reception of sorts on Fort Lauderdale Beach, along with about 75 gay and straight couples who either wed or renewed their vows in celebration of Florida’s Jan. 6 legalization of gay marriage. Hosted by the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau, the “Love is Love” mass wedding began at 7 a.m. “And for a thrill, we’re in town for three hours. We’ve got to go back to New York right after,” says Bass, 35, the former ‘N Sync boy-band star whose E! television reality special, Lance Loves Michael: The Lance Bass Wedding, debuted 8 p.m. Thursday.
