Being open / Etre ouvert









I am what I am


I am what I am

I am my own special creation

So come take a look

Give me the hook

Or the ovation

It's my world

That I want to have a little pride

My world

And it's not a place I have to hide in

Life's not worth a dam

Till I can say

I am what I am


I am what I am

I don't want praise I don't want pity

I bang my own drum

Some think it's noise I think it's pretty

And so what if I love each sparkle and each bangle

Why not see things from a different angle

Your life is a shame

Till you can shout out I am what I am



I am what I am

And what I am needs no excuses

I deal my own deck

Sometimes the aces sometimes the deuces

It's one life and there's no return and no deposit

One life so it's time to open up your closet

Life's not worth a dam till you can shout out

I am what I am

I am what I am

I am what I am

And what I am needs no excuses

I deal my own deck sometimes the aces sometimes the deuces

It's one life and there's no return and no deposit

One life so it's time to open up your closet

Life's not worth a dam till you can shout out

I am what I am

I am I am I am good
I am I am I am strong
I am I am I am worthy
I am I am I belong

I am
I am
Who whoooo etc.

I am

I am I am I am useful
I am I am I am true
I am I am somebody

I am as good as you

Yes I am


Composed by Jerry Herman (1983)

Performed by Gloria Gaynor, Shirley Bassey


Important song for the Gay community. What Wikipedia told us about this famous song:


This song was originally featured on the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical La Cage aux Folles (1983-1987). The song is found on the finale number of the play's first act, and performed by the character of Albin Mougeotte. The song was composed in 1983 by Jerry Herman, an openly gay man.

The song was later re-recorded and released as a single by gay icon and disco diva Gloria Gaynor in 1983, and proved to be one of the singer's best known hits among her fans.

While pretty much unknown to the mainstream public, (...) Gaynor's version of "I Am What I Am" would become the rallying cry of the Gay Pride movement, alongside another song of hers, "I Will Survive" (1979).

Laurent a dit…

Some very welcome ass portraits, but the guiding hand of the fuck valet, acting as "spotter" for cock's immersion in the lovely redhead in rollup, comes as an answer to the prayers of both principals, but is well compensated, too, by yielding the final word in the directing of the thrust to the valet's discretion. This would have suited the lead character in Harold Pinter's screenplay of Robin Maugham's "The Servant" (1963), which we gratefully recall on the day after Pinter's death at 78. Be that as it may, bottom's beautiful legs and perineum form such a gorgeous vortex for cock, that no one can doubt the valet's diligence in his nourishment and delight.
