In 1992 he took over as chairman of the Youth of the Christian People's Party, the youth wing of the Christian Democratic Party. In the autumn of 1992 he came forward as a homosexual, in the prime time news programme Lørdagsrevyen. Shortly after, he was removed from the party ticket for the Norwegian parliamentary election, 1993. Originally willing to continue as chairman of the Youth of the Christian People's Party, he was pressured to resign from this position. He was succeeded by Andreas E. Eidsaa.

Gåsland has later joined the Liberal Party. He was included on the party ticket in Oslo ahead of the 2001 parliamentary election, but was not elected. He works as a psychiatrist.

In 1993 he published the autobiographical book Alltid freidig which details his experience as a gay person in the Christian Democratic Party.
