Neon Trees' Tyler Glenn Comes Out as Gay

Neon Trees lead singer Tyler Glenn is opening up about his sexuality and coming out as gay for the first time.

“I’ve always felt like I’m an open book, and yet obviously I haven’t been completely,” the 30-year-old singer told Rolling Stone.

“I had my crushes on guys throughout high school, but it was never an overwhelming thing until my twenties,” Tyler added. “Then I’d be dating girls and in love with my straight friend and it was the worst feeling in the world.”

“I really love all of the sports figures that are coming out recently,” Tyler continued. “I appreciated Michael Sam was like, ‘I want to be able to go to the movies and hold hands with my boyfriend.’ Even hearing him say ‘boyfriend,’ I was just like, that’s cool.”

Neon Trees is best known for their smash hit song “Everybody Talks.”

    I don’t know him, never heard of him
    But I look at his pic and I’m like he’s gay
    Why do they need to come out? Out of what and where?
    Unless we can’t tell and you have women asking out
    But in his case I doubt it

    I don’t mind guys being gay. I just always feel sorry for them cuz a lot of them contract AIDS or else they have friends who are dying from it. It also lessens my own chance of finding a husband. It’s hard enough to find a man as it is.

    He had to COME out? Don’t know why people feel they have to make an announcement rather then just live their lives.
