I Am What I Am - John Barrowman

John Barrowman

He might not be wearing purple, but he sings the great song from La Cage Aux Folles, a song that has given strength to many in the LGBT community since the show opened in 1983, with a book by Harvey Fierstein, music and lyrics by Jerry Herman. I remember marching in the Pride Parade in NYC in the 80s, and singing this song as we marched down Fifth Avenue. So, to mark the day when people are being asked to wear purple to say they 'give a damn' about the bullying and discrimination in the world today. Here is John saying he gives a damn.
