A Bearded Drag Queen Wins Eurovison Song Competition



Austrian Thomas Neuwirth of Austria also known as Conchita Wurst as his alter ego won the Eurovison Song Competition and made everyone shocked because Wurst made history with his win. Despite condemnation of Russian politician Vladimir Zhirinovsky, who is vocal to his opinion at Wurst victory as “the end of Europe” adding, “There is no limit to our outrage.” Wurst still managed to rise above from the intrigues.


Wurst is 25 Years old and his appearance as a drag queen with beard challenged the current stereotypes of masculinity and feminity–wowed the crowd with his song entitled Rise Like A Phoenix

“This night is dedicated to everyone who believes in a future of peace and freedom…we are unity and we are unstoppable,” “I felt like tonight Europe showed that we are a community of respect and tolerance,” - Conchita Wurst
