A.V. Club: Barry Manilow comes out as gay, opens up about his 40-year relationship

Some of the reactions I keep seeing to this news tend to be of the “I knew it all along” variety, which is… tiring, honestly. Other folks have suggested that they’re bored with celebrity coming-out stories, as if the point of them was to shock or titillate or excite or something. I’m just glad that Manilow feels safe enough to come out, and hope that it’s a sign that he’s doing well.
