Tyler Glenn of the Neon Trees comes out, inspiring other LGBT artists

Tyler Glenn, lead singer of Neon Trees came out in April 2014 to Rolling Stone magazineTyler Glenn, lead singer of the Neon Trees, performing at a private event in Las Vegas.It seems it has to be headline news when public figures come out and admit they are openly gay. It happens in sports, music, entertainment, and politics. Yes, they are role models, but what a person does behind their closed bedroom door is their business. Unless you work in the gay porn industry, but then that goes without saying.

This past April, lead singer, Tyler Glenn, of the hit American rock band, Neon Trees, came out through an interview in the Rolling Stones. The alternative rock singer and keyboardist had known since he was young that he was gay.

One of Tyler’s challenges was growing up in a religious household. His family are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-day Saints. This clearly has impact and influence on his coming out. However, after coming out, Tyler is still faithful and respects his religious beliefs.

Before coming out, Tyler had a girlfriend. He also experimented with both drugs and alcohol. Today, he’s a much different person. He uses music to creatively express himself, he’s true to himself, and reportedly no longer uses substances including drugs or alcohol.

Tyler Glenn, lead singer of the Neon Trees, performing at a private event in Las Vegas.

When performing, Tyler speaks openly about his homosexuality. He’s proud of who he is and it’s reflective in his attitude both on and off the stage.

There is no doubt that Tyler’s coming out inspires many other up-and-coming LGBT artists including Jeffery Straker, Tyrell Witherspoon, Levis Kreis, and DJ Pornstar, and help boost their careers in the music industry by raising the profile of gay artists in mainstream music.


Canadian legend, Jann Arden, on tour across Canada

Jann Arden, Everything Almost tour

Jann Arden, Everything Almost TourCalgary’s very own Jann Arden is making her way across Canada this month on her Everything Almost Tour. The tour kicked off on September 4 in Victoria, BC. The tour is in honour of her latest album, Everything Almost, which was released in stores this past April 29.

It was a sold out show on Saturday, September 6 at the Orpheum Theatre in downtown Vancouver, as hundreds of Jann Arden fans crowded into the famed venue for an incredible show.

From the moment she walked on stage, the crowd was amazed at her voice, which danced throughout the acoustically perfected theatre. True to her nature, Jann made caddy, quick-witted jokes, including ones about her absolutely amazing choreography. Ok, so even Jann can joke around that she only has one dance move and that’s the tilt from front-to-back, but regardless, the lady can sing!

After listening to her concert, there’s little wonder how she’s been nominated for 19 Juno Awards, proudly taking 8 home to display on a mantle full of other hardware she’s collected over the years.

There’s more to Canadian singers than Bryan Adams, Justin Bieber and Celin Dion, although they are good too… but Jann Arden is a Canadian favourite, embedded in our culture, just like real Canadian maple syrup on pancakes on a Sunday morning at Grandma’s house.

The international star performed at the opening ceremonies and on the TD Welsey main stage at one of the largest pride celebrations in North America, held at the end of June.

World Pride performance strikes a chord with R&B diva, Jully Black

Jully Black at World Pride 2014

From the moment she stepped on the TD Welsey Stage at World Pride, the entire crowd knew it was going to be one hell of a show, and Jully Black did not disappoint. Jully Black sang her heart out at World Pride 2014 in Toronto, as the R&B soulstress, threw every ounce of passion she had into her 30+ minute performance, which left the ocean of concert-goers amazed at her power and energy. In a word, Jully Black was more than a diva, she was FIERCE!

Jully Black at World Pride 2014

Jully Black at World Pride 2014Performing at World Pride held a special place in Jully’s heart. The youngest of seven kids, and the only one who was born in Canada, Jully knew the meaning of the term gay from a very young age. While she was born in Canada, she grew up in Jamaica. She vividly recalls when she was just 13 years old when her sister’s best friend, who was gay, passed away from HIV. It was an emotional time for her, and her entire family.

Years later, Jully would again be faced with a similar situation where a close friend of hers who was living in New York found out he was HIV positive. Her friend was afraid of the stigma and told people he had cancer. It was hard for Jully.

For Jully, performing at World Pride was an opportunity for her to show people in Jamaica and around the world, to see her on stage, celebrating gay rights, and showing people that it’s ok to be who you are.

“The Olympics of gay prides of the world” is how Jully described World Pride 2014 in Toronto, Ontario. This was her first time performing at this kind of event. She took the opportunity so seriously that she even commissioned her very first custom made gown from a Vancouver, BC designer, specifically for the performance. And it dazzled! She looked fabulous!

Jully Black at World Pride 2014

Later this year, Jully Black will be releasing a new album, MIC, which was originally short for Made In Canada. She’s since shortened it to MIC, like mic, short for microphone, as a symbol to giving a voice. A touching tribute from an artist who has been honoured as one of Greatest Top 25 Singers in Canada Ever!

 Jully Black at World Pride 2014

Jully truly appreciates every single one of her fans around the world, old and new. Every new Like on Facebook and follower on Twitter excite her. She’s genuine, had a heart-of-gold, and judging by her incredible performance at World Pride, could easily out-do Beyoncé in a heartbeat!

But it wasn’t just hear two appearances that have made her stand out as one of the most important celebrity advocates for the LGBT community this summer.

Prior to the launch of Orange is the new Black, television series, Demi revealed that her own grandfather was a trailblazer in the LGBT community, having out in the 1960’s. Unfortunately he passed away a few years later and was not able to be a part of the massive movements the gay community has overcome. She admitted he would be proud and she is excited to be a part of more changes for the future.

In the lead up to the LA Pride parade, which she was the Grand Marshal, Demi had been working on a new song, Really Don’t Care. She worked with Christopher Street West, the organizers of the LA Pride parade and the LA Pride festival, and her crews came out to shoot the video for the new song.

The recently released Really Don’t Care video features scenes from the 2014 LA Pride parade and a special booth where LA Pride festival goers could be filmed in a white box for a chance to be in the video. The result is a sensational music video that truly represents the LGBT community.
