In an interview with PeopleManilow said he didn’t come out earlier because he didn’t want to disappoint his fans.

“I thought I would be disappointing them if they knew I was gay. So I never did anything,” says Manilow. “When they found out that Garry and I were together, they were so happy. The reaction was so beautiful — strangers commenting, ‘Great for you!’ I’m just so grateful for it,” the singer told People.
