Former NSync member and Dancing with the Stars alum Lance Bass will participate in a historic beach wedding in Fort Lauderdale to celebrate Florida becoming the latest state where gay couples can tie the knot.

100 couples, LGBT and straight, will marry or renew their vows during a sunrise beach wedding on Thursday, February 5.

The event will coincide with the airing of the E! special Lance Loves Michael: The Lance Bass Wedding, which documents Bass' recent California marriage to Michael Turchin.

(Related: Lance Bass initially said “no” to E! wedding special.)

As the event's official “Love is Love” ambassador, Bass will welcome the couples on the beach and speak during the event.

Couples marrying on Thursday made their way to Florida via 18 states and three nations.

“Lance shares the same pioneering spirit of advocating for LGBT equality that we embody here in Greater Fort Lauderdale,” Nicki E. Grossman, president and CEO of the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau, which is hosting the event, said in a statement. “We're thrilled to have him be part of our historic moment on the same day he shares his own personal wedding with the world.”

The 7 AM wedding, which takes place on Fort Lauderdale beach, will be followed by a reception at the W Fort Lauderdale.
