Neon Trees Frontman Tyler Glenn Comes Out

In: Donovan, Music, Totally GAY!

Tyler Glenn is the lead singer for American alternative rock band Neon Trees. They’re best known for their Top 10 hit, “Everybody Talks” which peaked at No. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100 back in 2011. The 30-year-old singer just publicly came out in an interview featured in the latest issue of Rolling Stone on stands this Friday, March 28. The Mormon-raised singer reveals he’s known he was gay since a young child but kept his sexuality a secret until now.

“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.”

Glenn began telling close friends and family members in October 2013 as he was finishing writing songs for Neon Tree’s forthcoming third studio album, Pop Psychology. Reportedly, many of the tracks address his years in the closet. What inspired him to publicly come out is the variety of men and women recently going public, especially professional athletes.

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

Congrats to Tyler Glenn for finding the courage to come out. Welcome to the family, gurl ;) Check out Neon Trees’ breakout hit below.

At first glance, it looks like your typical rap video featuring plenty of video hos shaking their ample behinds. In this instance, however, the script is flipped and it’s an openly gay rapper objectifying other gay men. It’s about time.

Fly Young Red drops a borderline vulgar new single named “Throw That Boy Pussy.” The Houston native accompanies it with an equally salacious visual featuring plenty of booty-popping and twerking. Check out a sampling of the lyrics below before checking out the video. Proceed ahead only if you’re ready for all the jelly.

Clap that ass in a split, let me see you clap that ass like a bitch
Yeah, I’m tryin’ to get you back home, see if you can clap that ass on this dick
I see you over there twerkin’, that ass got my attention
I’ll hit your ass with this dick, send that ass home limpin’

When Blake McIver resurfaced a month ago on Bravo’s Couch, he caused a bit of online buzz. The former child star is full grown and loves sharing shirtless selfies. That’s right. Little Waldo from Little Rascals is now one big ol’ homo.

Naturally, with some new-found notoriety, McIcver wisely chose to capitalize on it. The 28-year-old actor did what every fame-seeking homo with a decent voice did. He recorded a song and filmed a video for it.

Wish I Didn’t Need You” finds Blake singing about the pain of a tumultuous relationship while wearing pec-revealing outfits. It’s not my cup of tea, but gotta give him credit for putting himself out there. Bonus points for not going with some cheesy lightweight dance track. Check it out below. Be sure to weigh in below after watching.

Did you catch Mary Lambert performing with Macklemore & Ryan Lewis at this past weekend’s MTV VMAs? The openly-lesbian singer definitely held her own with the vocal powerhouse that is Jennifer Hudson. Hot off her Moonman win for “Same Love,” the 24-year-old singer/songwriter debuts her brand new music video for her love song “She Keeps Me Warm.”

The track celebrates the love and attraction within same-sex relationships. It is a pure love song meant for all people, intending not to exploit or provide shock value, but to paint a graceful and powerful romantic picture. Filming the clip was an all-lesbian affair. Lambert reveals an all-queer female crew were on hand including Mego Lin who directed the visual. Naturally, given the fact she’s from Seattle and a lesbian, it’s filmed at a coffee shop ;) Check it out below.

Tom Goss Films A Love Letter To Bears

In: Donovan, Music, Totally GAY!

Do you like your men big, burly and hairy? You’re not alone. Tom Goss does as well. The openly-gay singer-songwriter penned a catchy little ditty titled, appropriately enough, “Bears,” and filmed a music video for it.

“We are overrun with images of perfect men, in perfect clothes and perfect bodies,” Goss says, “and as a result, many people doubt their self-image. This video showcases what it means to be beautiful and sexy, regardless of size.”

Directed by Aram Vartian and Michael Patrick Key, the clip is a cornucopia of bear daddies. Whether slipping and sliding at a “bearbecue” or dancing (and sweating) the night away on a crowded dance floor, men of all shapes, sizes and varying degree of body hair are featured. If you like your guys smooth and smaller though, there’s plenty of gratuitous shots of Tom as well. Enjoy.

Let me preface this by saying that I absolutely love country music. My love for country music is now a couple years old or so, but I despite the newness I really do enjoy it. I mean, Shania Twain essentially made everyone a country fan right?

So, today, when I was reading my BuzzFeed, I was extremely excited to see the headline: “First out gay male country star!” We all know how gorgeous country men can be, and with their smooth voices and bitchin’ biceps it’s a match made it heaven. Now, enter Steve Grand who pretty much fits the bill of what I love in a country man to a tee, still, there is definitely more to this singer than meets the horny eye.

What I love about country is the melodrama in every song: the longing and the aching of your true love. The pain in the super dramatic lyrics (hmmm, me liking something super dramatic? Groundbreaking, right?). Well, what if you put a gay twist on it? At first I was worried that “All American Boy” was going to play out like a soft core porn, in the end it actually really got me in the feels. When “Teenage Dream” came out by Katy Perry (whom I can’t stand), it gave me the feeling of a summer romance. This does the same thing, although it doesn’t have as much of a happy ending. Scott is singing about his “all American boy” who he falls for one night by the fire; they hang out and even kiss. It’s what happens after that gets you, and who hasn’t been in that situation?

This song took me right back to my teenage years when all you wanted was a great summer love. I really do like this song. I love the video and I am absolutely in awe of Steve Grand. Will he make it? I don’t know. Nashville is not the most welcoming place to gals like us. His video however has gotten some traction. I first watched it with 910 views and 6 hours later it reached 35k which is damn impressive. I’m going to stick with this kid, see where he goes.

Gay singer-songwriter Ryan Amador teams up with Avan Lava singer Jo Lampert for a beautiful new video with a powerful message. The two tackle the unwanted ugly labels that are often times hurled at the LGBT community. Tom Gustafson directed the “Define Me” clip with his partner Cory Krueckeberg editing it.

Brooklyn-based Amador and Lampert begin fully clothed. Slowly they begin to take of their clothing revealing their bodies riddled with homophobic labels. The clip culminates with them washing and scrubbing off their body graffiti. “We’re starting this party tonight, where people will be undefined,” they sing. 100% of the single’s proceeds will be donated to LGBT equality organizations. Check out the clip below.

On Friday, I had the opportunity to interview Vicci Martinez, whom you likely remember as one of the talented finalists from Season 1 of The Voice. She was a runner up, but was the last one standing on Cee Lo Green‘s team. Martinez and Cee Lo Green actually collaborated on a song together called “Come Along” and it won “Best Rock Song” at the Out Music Awards back in December. She and Cee Lo shot the music video for the song in Seattle earlier this month and they just received the final cut of the video today. Can’t wait to see how it turned out!

Martinez was a little under the weather when I spoke with her, but she’s pushing through because she’s currently on tour right now and has to push through and take care of herself. I talked to her about whether she thinks being an out singer has helped or hindered her career, or if it even matters. The singer is known for her very touching and personal lyrics (“Hold Me Darling” had me in tears a few weeks ago!), so I asked her if she was writing any songs at the moment based on anything going on in her life… and she was and told me about it.

Find out what she had to say about all of this and more by listening to the interview below. Stay tuned for her “Come Along” music video with Cee Lo Green in the near future!
