Exploring the world from a female perspective

Diana Ross recorded “I’m Coming Out” in 1980. Don’t remember it? Refresh your ears here . The link will open in a new window so the song will play in the background, capturing the joy of the celebrations.

I'm comin' out

I’m comin’ out

I want the world to know I;m going to let it show

I want the world to know
I got  to let it show

I'm coming out

I’m coming out

I want the world to know I'm going to let it show

I want the world to know
I got  to let it show

There's a new me coming out

There’s a new me coming out

And I just had to live

And I just had to live

And I wanna give I'm completely positive

And I wanna give
I’m completely positive

 

I think this time around I'm gonna do it

I think this time around
I am  gonna do it

Like you never knew Ooh I'll make it through

Like you never knew it
Ooh I’ll make it through

I have to shout That I am coming out

I have to shout
That I am coming out

 

The time has come for me To break out of this shell

The time has come for me
To break out of this shell

 

 

 

I've got to show the world All that I want to be

I’ve got to show the world
All that I want to be

And all my abilities There's so much more to me

And all my abilities
There’s so much more to me

Somehow I have to make them just undersand

Somehow I have to make them just understand

I got it well in hand

I got it well in hand

 

And I've got it planned I'm spreading love

And, oh, how I’ve planned
I’m spreading love

 

There is no need to fear And I just feel so good Every time I hear

There is no need to fear
And I just feel so good
Every time I hear

I'm coming out I want the world to know I'm going to let it show

I’m coming out
I want the world to know
I’m going to let it show

    A new song for me! Looks like the Gay Pride parade gave a welcome boost of colour (and pride) to an otherwise grey, conservative Edmonton day. Looks like everyone was having a wonderful time.

    I attended the Pride Parade 2 years ago, and this one had at least double the parade entries, and a packed parade route – LGBTQ and straight, kids, youth and adults. It gave me a lot of hope that we’re well on our way to accepting sexual diversity. Maybe when the little girl in her motorized car is our age, she’ll find it very strange that the world was every otherwise.

    Love your thoughts about the little girl in the car…. it was a beautiful parade. Made me proud to be an Edmontonian.
