Neon Trees' Singer Tyler Glenn On Coming Out As A Gay Mormon
Tyler Glenn, the talented lead singer of one of the biggest current pop/punk bands, came out of the closet in March after struggling to accept his identity as a gay Mormon pop star.
With some time between himself and making international news nearly six months ago, Tyler's opening up further with Far Between, a documentary about LGBT Mormons that's currently fundraising on Kickstarter.
In the video Tyler says:
I can’t imagine going farther in life without accepting who I am and now it’s so refreshing to be able to say, I’m figuring it out and I don't have all the answers. When before I would make up answers or I would, you know, tell myself the solutions. And now it’s just really refreshing to be able to say, like, yeah, I love guys. I still believe in that. I still believe in the power of prayer. I still love my family. I still hope that there’s some sort of, you know, togetherness in the afterlife. I don’t want…I don’t know all the answers but I also know this is who I am, this is how I feel.
