Despite being outed by Suzanne Somers in 2015, Barry Manilow has never officially confirmed his sexuality — at least until now. In an interview with People, Barry spoke out about being gay and talked about his nearly 40-year relationship with his husband, Garry Kief. It turns out that Barry Manilow stayed quiet about his sexuality because he was afraid of how his fans would react. With his fanbase being primarily women, he didn’t want them to feel as if he was abandoning them. The pair were married in a private and intimate ceremony at their shared home in April, 2014. The ceremony was a surprise to the 20 to 30 guests who had been invited, who all thought that they were just there for a luncheon. The pair have been dating since 1978. Kief is also Barry’s business manager and president of Barry Manilow Productions.
