      Good for Conchita. Russia can go fuck itself. I hope she has a bunch more hits and becomes incredibly popular just to continue to piss Putin off.

      Putin will get so mad that even his weekly blow-job from Johnny Weir won’t be able to cheer him up.

      This Austrian goose is in it for the money in my opinion. He’s a gimmick who is getting publicity for the way he looks. If he is homosexual, why isn’t he out and about with his boyfriend? Or is that too real a depiction of homosexuality?

      He’s a gimmick designed to make money and to make Europeans feel as if they are progressive on GLBT rights when in fact they aren’t.

      Wrong on so many levels. He is not appearing with his boyfriend because he is playing a role. As Conchita he appears with her fictional boyfriend, who is also acting a role.
      As a gay male he doesn’t appear publicly at all, with of without his boyfriend, who is a private person, not a celebrity. It would ruin the illusion of Conchita.
      And it isn’t some new gimmick, created for the Eurovision. Conchita has been around for years.

      There is no conspiracy to make Europeans look progressive. She had to fight tooth and nail in order to achieve this. Homophobic opposition in Austria, in Europe, in Russia, was very active and ruthless. In the end, her win made many people realise how awful homophobia is and that gay people need more rights and respect. First day on Monday after her win the Austrian government announced a push for more rights for gay people. That counts for something.

      @michael mellor: I knew it was a matter of time before the transgestapo came after Conchita. You’re just jealous because people take her way more seriously than all of you claiming to be ‘women’.

      @jayj150: Do you have any proof they are trans or are you just spouting your paranoid nonsense again?
