Brian Littrell released Welcome Home on May 2, 2006. I bought a “few” copies the day it went on sale. I’m the type of person who likes a copy of a CD at work and a copy at home. I always feared I would forget to either take it to work or bring it home at the end of the day.

For the first 37 years of my life, I never thought about how disabled people attended concerts. That all changed when my Mom had to have her leg (just below her knee) amputated in 2017.

My Mom took me to my first concert when I was in 4th grade to see New Kids on the Block. Then it was Alan Jackson, Garth Brookes, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, and eventually the Backstreet Boys. She loves the boys, maybe not as much as me, but she does. I’ve taken her to concerts since, such as NKOTBSB, Backstreet Boys, and even

Author’s Note: I have warm, fuzzy feelings when I think about each Backstreet Boy. This will be part of an ongoing series which covers first impressions of the boys.

If you’ve read my other posts, you’ll know that I’ve written my first impressions on Howie, Nick, AJ and Brian. I’ve re-written this blog post about 100 times because I felt like I wasn’t doing this person justice. It’s going to be a long one, so if you want, now is a good time to go grab a snack. Got your snack? Ok, here we go!

This post was meant to make people keep their eyes open like you would in everyday life. It’s about sharing how I’ve been burned and not for the reason many think. People can think it’s bullying or being mean. It’s about helping other fans because since I first posted this, so many others have come to me saying they’ve experienced the same thing. Don’t like what I write? Don’t read it. Simple as that.

When I first started out in the Backstreet Boys fandom, back in the days of 1998 where Yahoo! Chat was the main communication tool before AOL chatrooms and long before the days of social media, I was very wary online. I never posted pictures of myself. I never did any of that.

Am I the only one that needs a real Backstreet Boys/Shania Twain duet?

Seriously it’s a real question. It’s been almost 22 years since we had the pleasure of seeing Shania Twain sing “From This Moment On” (her duet with country singer Bryan White) with the Backstreet Boys.

“I wish I was as dedicated and loyal to ANYTHING in my life as you are to the Backstreet Boys.” – Former Co-Worker 

Whether she meant it as a compliment or not, my former co-worker expressed a sentiment shared by many colleagues and friends in my life. And, as with most foreign concepts, there is a lot of curiosity around what it means to be a Backstreet Boys “fangirl.” Here are a few of the most frequently asked questions from people outside the fandom and my best responses (feel free to adapt and recycle where appropriate!).
