Eurovision - a "Hotbed of Sodomy"



From Pink News:
Petitions calling for the removal of Austria’s Eurovision entry have received thousands of signatures.

Drag artist Conchita Wurst, real name Tom Neuwirth, is set to represent Austria in two weeks’ time, with ballad Rise Like a Phoenix.

However, petitions launched in Ukraine, Russia and Belarus, all of whom enter the contest, are calling for the entry to be disqualified, or edited out of the broadcast in their country.

According to Reuters, the Russian petition calls on state broadcaster to refuse to air the contest.

It reads: “Austria will be represented in the Eurovision 2014 by the transvestite contestant Conchita Wurst who leads the lifestyle inapplicable for the Russians.

“The popular international competition that our children will be watching has become a hotbed of sodomy at the initiation of the European liberals.

“Russia is one of the only European countries that has managed to maintain normal and healthy family values based on love and mutual support between MEN and WOMEN.

“That is why we are against the Eurovision 2014 to be broadcast in Russia.”


Wurst will perform in the second semi-final, to be held on 8th May.

If successful, she will advance to the grand final on 10th May.
I hope she wins!

  1. Russia and the Ukraine are just getting worse, which is hard to imagine. Is this all just to make the United States look good by comparison?

    1. If it is, it's a PR exercise worthy of "Wag the Dog"... Jx

    1. I am surprised, given the warlike situation (not to mention the outright Fascism) that either country was already allowed in! Jx

  3. I don't care much for that particular song, or it's performer. But it is not a political song - therefore, there are no grounds whatsoever to try and get it disqualified! At least the song is (slightly) better than the cutsie-cutsie one from Russia...

    1. I quite like it (and her) - I think it is a definite contender to win. And all this controversy can't do Fraulein Wurst's chances any harm... Jx

  4. It just seems to get worse as time goes by in Russia, and now Ukraine. What next, all the gays grouped together and put in camps?

    1. Political tyranny, religion, threats of war and social/economic decline combine to make all this fascist rhetoric very worrying indeed... Jx
