Austrian Drag Singer Wins Eurovision 2014

“Bearded Lady” Conchita Wurst (Thomas Neuwirth) won this year’s Eurovision competition for Austria with “Rise like a Phoenix.” It was a “victory for tolerance” declared the singer. Calls from Russia, Armenia, and Belarus to ban the drag queen’s performance did not succeed. Russia’s song and point announcements were repeatedly booed at the semi-final and final in Copenhagen, Denmark.
