Former NSYNC member and budding gay activist Lance Bass has contributed his voice and celebrity to a new PSA against anti-gay bullying in schools. The ad produced by gay rights organization GLSEN was created for this year's Day of Silence, which commemorates those lost to anti-gay violence.

This year's Day Of Silence will honor Oxnard, California student Lawrence King who died from a gunshot wound inflicted by a classmate because he was gay.

In the PSA above, Bass insists that gays are “brothers and sisters” and that we must all work to educate the rest of the world.

Side note: While the death of Lawrence King was tragic and senseless, let's not forget about the death of Florida teen Simmie Williams who was gunned down shortly after King. There are no leads in his case and his killer is still on the loose.
