Paoli native comedian Todd Glass came out as a homosexual on yesterday’s “WTF” podcast by Marc Maron, who records in-depth interviews with comics.

You can hear the 80 minute interview online or through iTunes.

Close friends of Glass, 47, have known the Conestoga High graduate was gay but his acknowledgement today was his first public declaration and made in response to the recent string of suicides connected to gay teens being bullied.

“I cannot listen to stories about kids killing themselves any longer,” Glass said, adding that he has wanted to come out for a year.

Glass, who plays Helium Comedy Club (2031 Sansom) March 21-24, said he hopes to help kids, whether it is starting a campaign or finally being honest on stage.

Glass’ credits include two seasons of “Last Comic Standing” as well as his own Comedy Central special and appearances on “The Sarah Silverman Program’ and “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”
