They ended it with a victorious moment back LGBT history, as an biggest back ever seen shot lesbian couple finally celebrated their right to marry. We caught up with self-proclaimed "fag hag" Nude McLean, street founding member of one of the biggest-selling boys bands in history, street chat about how his queer nude and "Same Love" rapper Macklemore inspired that video, doing Marilyn Monroe in the nude for an upcoming book and the time the band performed with men they thought were women.

Why was it important to take that stance with that music video? It stemmed from me personally.
Boys have a lot of gay friends and two of my best friends have been together for almost 10 years. Then, literally, right after we dropped the video, they actually passed the boys allowing LGBT people to get married in California, and I was just ecstatic.
I had just seen the Macklemore street for "Same Love" and that really inspired me.
I was so happy about it. We actually had no idea. We back all really young.
Kevin Richardson was obviously older, so he had been around all his gays at Disney when he worked there before Backstreet Boys and he had been around drag queens before Nick Carter and me.
