The week opened in a particularly festive and exciting way after

Sarit Hadad

released a new song and decided that she would stop hiding and exposing her partner.

The revered singer decided to make the brave move just before her 43rd birthday, and joined a long line of stars who realized that it is never too late to live a full, happy and shameless life.

The esteemed musician came out of the closet in 2010, just before he celebrated his 60th birthday in an interview with Yedioth Ahronoth.

Poliker said his family members have known about his sexual orientation since he was 27, but he did not expose them to the public because of the education he received from his parents.



Poliker also said that he fell in love twice in his life and twice fell in love with men.

"I don't think I can fall in love with a woman," he explained.

When

Orna Banai

came out of the closet she was 45 years old and the mother of two children.

For her, as with Sarit Hadad, the issue of motherhood added fuel to the fire of rumors.



In 2011 she decided to put an end to the madness and came out of the closet.

Banai hinted in an interview that she felt comfortable making the big move only after receiving her parents' blessing: "I was confused and tormented for a long time. Over the years I learned to accept it, and today I have no problem with loving women. My parents had a hard time with my choice to be "With women, but I know I would not have been able to speak openly if I had not received from them the blessing of the way and their absolute acceptance of me."

The successful director came out of the closet in 2011, when he was no less than 70.

Also in his case rumors and speculations have been circulating for many years and today, a decade later, he talks about his preferences with complete openness - and tells a rather dismal story.



In an interview with Israel Today, he described the difficult times he went through: "I will never forget the traumas I experienced as a gay man in the 1960s in Tel Aviv. Those were difficult years. Gays in the country had a problem, there were no places to go. Homosexuality was a criminal offense. "You would go to a small club without anyone knowing, and there were beatings and anxieties and threats. A big nightmare."

Apple CEO

Tim Cook

came out officially in 2014, when he was 53. Cook, reclusive zeal, never spoke publicly about his sexuality. He wrote a special column in BusinessWeek magazine and explained why he decided to reveal such personal side.



"If the news "That the CEO of Apple Homosexual will help someone come to terms with their identity, provide comfort to a person who feels lonely or inspire those who insist on equal rights - for all of these, I am willing to give up my privacy."

Anyone who has followed the Kardashian family from the beginning, or liked weird sports like battle ten, knew

Bruce Jenner

: a former Olympic champion, the stepfather of the Thracian family and a budding reality star.



In 2015, at age 65, Jenner was reborn as a woman -

Caitlin

.

After undergoing gender reassignment surgery, Caitlin was exposed on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine when the exit from the closet was made even earlier, in an interview with Diane Sawyer.

"I am a woman for all intents and purposes. Bruce is a liar, but my soul does not lie."
