Tyler Glenn, Neon Trees Lead Singer, Comes Out as Gay

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Tyler Glenn, the frontman for alternative rock band Neon Trees, has come out as gay.

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

Glenn continued:

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

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

And now, of course, many are talking about Glenn's big news.

“I really love all of the sports figures that are coming out recently,” Tyler added. “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.”

We applaud Glenn, Ellen Page and the other celebrities on the following list who are out, about and proud:

Ellen Page made a major announcement in early 2014: She's gay. We applaud her for it.
