For many decades, legendary American
singer, Barry Manilow kept his sexuality a
secret for fear of how fans might react.
He married his longtime partner and
manager, Garry Klef in a secret wedding in
2014 before coming out in 2015. In his
recent interview with People’s Magazine,
Barry explained why it took him several
years to come out.
“I thought I would be disappointing
them if they knew I was gay. So I
never did anything. When they found
out that Garry and I were together,
they were so happy. The reaction
was so beautiful strangers
commenting” he said.
