25 Of The Most Inspiring Celebrity Coming Out Stories
It’s amazing that Barry Manilow came out as recently as 2017, when he was 73. Barry confirmed his three-year marriage to Garry Klef to People Magazine, admitting that he had put off coming out for so long because he was worried about what his Fanilows would think. He was worried that they would be disappointed, but when his sexuality was confirmed, Barry’s fans were just happy for him.
“When they found out that Garry and I were together, they were so happy,” Barry shared. “The reaction was so beautiful — strangers commenting, ‘Great for you!’ I’m just so grateful for it.”
