I found myself when I lost my faith | Tyler Glenn | TEDxUniversityofNevada

Saw a tweet about this amazing video from Tyler Glenn of Neon Trees. It’s important for everyone to watch this one.

From Youtube:
Published on Feb 16, 2017
Tyler Glenn performs “Devil”, “Sudden Death (OMG)” and “Midnight” from his 2016 album Excommunication. Between songs, Tyler discusses his faith transition after coming out as gay and leaving the Mormon Church. “I feel like I’m finally Tyler Glenn, without any other label.”

Tyler Glenn is a solo artist and lead vocalist/keyboardist for the band Neon Trees. Glenn, who had been a Mormon since childhood, came out as gay in a 2014 interview with Rolling Stone. “Excommunication”, Glenn’s debut 2016 release, takes fans inside the crisis of faith he was thrown into last fall when the church announced a new policy that identifies those in a same-sex marriage as apostates and prohibits their children from being blessed or baptized by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS) until they turn 18 and disavow their parents’ lifestyle.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

Wren (@wrenthereaper) is a great guy who is making cool videos and he and a group of awesome YouTuber’s have created this post Harry Potter video. It’s a MUST watch. Beautifully made. I know from following Wren on YouTube and Twitter how much time, energy, stress and sleepless nights that he’s put into completing this.

Let’s hope that it becomes a Web Series. Wouldn’t that be cool?

Check out the video below:

Also – We should give a BIG shoutout to his fiance for her support during the creation of this video.
