" I'm Coming Out " is a song recorded by American singer Diana Ross . It was written and produced by Chic members Bernard Edwards and Nile Rodgers , and released in August 22, 1980 as the second single from Ross' self-titled tenth album Diana (1980).

In 1979, Ross commissioned Chic founders Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards to create material for a new album after taking her daughters to see the band in concert, following the success of Ross's final Ashford & Simpson -composed and produced LP, The Boss . Rodgers got the idea for "I'm Coming Out" after noticing three different drag queens dressed as Diana Ross at a New York club called the GG Barnum Room. The lyrics hold an additional meaning to Ross, as she was leaving Motown Records and "coming out" from under Berry Gordy 's thumb. [1]

The song was another hit from the album, peaking at number five on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart for two weeks in November 1980. [2] It is also notable for being the first song usually performed at Ross' performances and concerts since 1980.
