Representation and Diversity at Eurovision
Moving on from American Song Contest, I sit down to chat on zoom with Isabelle in the United Kingdom about many topics including Conchita Wurst, the 2014 winner for Austria. This episode focuses on representation at Eurovision, how it attracts queer fans, two different types of drag and the idea of seeing yourself on stage.
How important is it to see different walks of life in a song contest?
1. Rise Like a Phoenix – Conchita Wurst (Austria: 2014)
2. Dancing Lasha Tumbai – Verka Serduchka (Ukraine: 2007)
3. LoveWave – Iveta Mukuchyan (Armenia: 2016)
4. Apricot Stone – Eva Rivas (Armenia: 2010)
