With the 11th annual National Day of Silence is approaching, is getting himself ready to mark the day, when students take a vow of silence to protest bullying, harassment and discrimination in schools. The openly gay singer has made a public service announcement (PSA) for the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network (GLSEN).
"I think it's time for me to stand up ... and help educate, because I'm lucky enough to have been given a voice to be able to talk and grab the attention of people," Bass said about him taking part in the effort. "Everyday, thousands of students are silenced. They're silenced by fear, they're silenced for being who they are ... They're brothers, they're sisters, they're gay, they're straight, they're you, they're me."
