Birthday girl Gloria Gaynor belts out every gay man’s break-up anthem: “I Will Survive”

Gloria Gaynor is celebrating her 77th birthday so what better time than right now to enjoy two of her biggest hits – gay empowerment anthems I Will Survive and I Am What I Am.

Because I will – and I am!

I Will Survive reached number one in 1979 and it’s become an anthem for every gay man who’s ever had a broken heart. I’ve had a few and this song helped me to process it all – and to survive!

Four years later, Gloria hit our gay sweet spots again with her version of I Am What I Am from La Cage aux Folles. Although the song was not initially a big hit in the US, it reached #13 in the UK charts. It eventually became the second Gaynor songs to serve as a rallying cry for the gay pride movement.
