People been talking for years about Barry Manilow’s sexuality is he gay or isn’t he? Manilow is now talking about his reluctance to open up about his long term relationship with Garry of nearly 40 years.
He said that he has always been so private. Barry also admits he thought being openly gay would really disappoint his largely female audience. I thought I would be disappointing them if they knew I was gay. Turns out, ‘When my fans did find out about my bf Garry and I were together, they were really happy. The reaction was so beautiful — strangers commenting, ‘Great for you!’ I’m just so grateful for it.’
They met back in 1978 and he just knew he was the one. Before meeting Garry he was very lonely. Barry thinks Garry is the smartest person he has ever met in his life — and also a really great guy, too! See the full story in People Magazine this week. BRAVO BARRY!
