So Barry Manilow has come out as gay.
Barry Manilow Reveals Why He Didn’t Come Out for Decades: I Thought I Would ‘Disappoint’ Fans If They Knew I Was Gay
For decades Barry Manilow gave the world timeless hits, while keeping his own world a total secret. Now at 73 years old, the music legend is opening up about his life, struggles and, for the first time, his sexuality.
To the extent I ever sorta-thought about, I always assumed he was gay. I mean… he’s had a “partner” for decades. Can’t say it ever mattered when I heard his music, so WTF?
