rovo, Utah, is home to 112,000 people, 61 Mormon churches, four coffee shops, two music clubs – and, on this crisp Friday evening in February, one bleached-blond pop singer enjoying a rare night on the town.Listen to Neon Trees' "Sleeping With a Friend"Tyler Glenn of Neon Trees gleams like a fluorescent highlighter as he emerges from the city's largest rock venue, Velour, wearing a long green coat that's the color and texture of a tennis ball, plus a Freddie Mercury T-shirt and leather pants."I had my crushes on guys throughout high school, but it was never an overwhelming thing until my twenties," he admits."Then I'd be dating girls and in love with my straight friend and it was the worst feeling in the world," he said to Rolling Stone.The video immediately generated controversy among Mormons, many of whom found it offensive.Glenn says he had known he was gay since he was a young child.
In 2015, Glenn joined the holiday music supergroup Band of Merrymakers for their album Welcome to Our Christmas Party. In high school I used my girlfriend's credit card to buy Bruce Springsteen memorabilia on e Bay without asking. I own a signed full size cardboard cut out of Morrissey in the nude. I've eaten vegan/vegetarian for almost 10 years. Like Glenn, the other three members of Neon Trees were raised Mormon.And while the band has no overt religious affiliation, it credits the Church of Latter-day Saints' strict ordinances against drinking and drugs – which the members have adopted as band rules – with helping its rise.
