Neon Trees singer Tyler Glenn has announced he’s gay.

The 30-year-old reveals he always knew he was a homosexual and he “came out” to his family, friends and bandmates in October.

He tells RollingStone.com, “I’ve always felt like I’m an open book, and yet obviously I haven’t been, completely.

“I had my crushes on guys throughout high school, but it was never an overwhelming thing until my 20s. Then I’d be dating girls and in love with my straight friend and it was the worst feeling in the world.”

Since coming out, Glenn has been inspired by all the U.S. professional athletes like college football player Michael Sam and NBA player Jason Collins who have chosen to do the same.

He continues, “I really love all of the sports figures that are coming out recently. 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’.”
