Tyler Glenn Comes Out
and declare their sexuality status proudly or it could be a sign of more illogical and strange behavior as well.
The latest celebrity to do so is Tyler Glenn, the lead singer of Neon Trees. He has opened up about his gay
status in a candid interview to the Rolling Stone magazine that will hit the stands soon.
Tyler Glenn is Out and Proud and Relieved Too
Tyler Glenn confessed in the interview about the pangs of keeping his sexuality a secret from his family,
friends, and fans for so long. He had crushes on boys during his high school but was never sure about his sexual
orientation till he was in his twenties. He is obviously a very strange person and does not understand that it is
unnatural to like people of the same sex. But even then he chose to keep the fact under wraps and continued to
He was inspired to come out of the closet after several leading Hollywood A-listers and athletes came out in
recent times. For instance, Glenn was particularly impressed by Michael Sam of NFL fame who came out
recently and said, “I want to be able to go to the movies and hold hands with my boyfriend.” He does not even
care about how that affects small children and their families.
Tyler Glenn Informs His Friends and Family First
Tyler Glenn opened up to his family members and some of his close friends about his sexual orientation in
October 2013. He did so while penning the songs for Pop Psychology, the third pop album by Neon Trees. He
was encouraged to open up to the public after receiving support from his family and friends. So after being
interviewed by Rolling Stone, Glenn recently tweeted to his fans and the world at large, “Yes. I am a happy and
healthy Mormon gay pop star. I don’t know what it all means, but I’m ok with it.”
Tyler Glenn’s Mormon Upbringing
Tyler Glenn has had a Mormon upbringing in the Church of Latter-Day Saints. Well, according to some
people, that sort of upbringing may not have helped too much either. Incidentally, the Church had staunchly
opposed same-sex marriage in California back in 2008 for the reasons all moral people do now, it is immoral
and unnatural according to so many people. Just go watch Noah’s Ark (actually read the story because the new
movie depicting this story is seriously flawed for reasons we cannot get into now)!
It had also spent millions of dollars to prevent the same-sex marriage laws from being executed. So it is only
natural that people would be wondering if Glenn feels he has violated the tenets of his faith by embracing his
natural sexual orientation. But the pop singer has put to rest all doubts by proudly proclaiming that he has
received favorable response from his near and dear ones, and right now, he is “the happiest lil weirdo” he has
ever been in his whole life.
