June is Pride month, and we're celebrating celebrities who have come out since last year.
In April, Manilow spoke openly about his sexuality for the first time with People Magazine. He told the magazine he'd kept his sexuality a secret because he didn't want to "disappoint" fans if they knew he was gay. Now, he is out and happily married to his manager, Garry Kief -- they have married since 2014.
CMT host Cody Alan came out to fans on Instagram in January. "You see, I’m gay. This is not a choice I made, but something I've known about myself my whole life," he captioned the post. "Here's to being happy with yourself, no matter who you are, who you love, where you come from, or what cards life has dealt you."
The "Walking Dead" star came out to fans in March on Twitter and YouTube. "I'm #OUTandPROUD #LGBT Love you guys," he tweeted. In the YouTube video, he explained why he chose to come out publicly. "And I realised how important it is in this day and age to be visible – to let people who know you are," he said.
The "Twilight" star confirmed to Elle U.K. last July that she doesn't want to hide her sexuality or relationship with her girlfriend, Alicia Cargile. "To hide [our relationship] provides the implication that I'm not down with it or I'm ashamed of it," she told the magazine. "So I had to alter how I approached being in public. It opened my life up and I'm so much happier."

The actress best known for her role as Barb on "Stranger Things" came out to fans on Twitter in April. "I've only just recently come out as bisexual to my family and friends," she said in the post.

At the 40 to None Summit last year, Ramirez came out as bisexual in her speech. Best known for her role as Dr. Callie Torres on "Grey's Anatomy," she spoke about the importance of giving voice to homeless youth. "And, because of the intersections that exist in my own life — woman, multiracial woman, woman of color, queer, bisexual, Mexican-Irish American, immigrant and raised by families heavily rooted in Catholicism on both my Mexican and Irish sides — I am deeply invested in projects that allow our youth’s voices to be heard, and that support our youth in owning their own complex narratives so that we can show up for them in the ways they need us to," she said.
