Tyler Glenn, frontman for the
Utah-based alternative rock band Neon Trees, discusses being gay for
the first time publicly in the latest issue of Rolling Stone.
“I've always felt like I'm an open
book, and yet obviously I haven't been completely,” Glenn
said in the interview available online Tuesday.
Glenn said he's known he was gay since
he was a child but remained closeted.
“I really love all the sports figures
that are coming out recently. I appreciate Michael Sam was like, 'I

boyfriend.' Even hearing him say 'boyfriend,' I was just like,
He added in a tweet to his nearly
29,000 followers: “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.”
