Tyler Glenn, the recently out frontman for the Utah-based alternative rock band Neon Trees, says he knew he was gay since he was 3 but kept it to himself until recently.

Glenn came out in April, tweeting to his 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.”

In a video clip for the upcoming documentary Far Between, which takes a look at LGBT Mormons, Glenn said that growing up Mormon left him fearful to explore his sexuality.

In the video, Glenn describes coming out to his producer.

“It was the very first time anyone had given me a positive reaction to anything regarding being gay. And there was even like a tone of excitement, like, I'm so excited for you. That blew my mind that that could be something you should be happy about, like it was always something that I needed to be afraid of, or that I needed to keep hidden, or that I needed to laugh about and, you know, sort of joke about. But it was never something that I could actually do.”

“Now it's just really refreshing to be able to say I love God,” he later added. “I don't know all the answers but I also know this is who I am. This is how I feel.” (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
