Europe: 12 points

Yesterday there was the Annual Eurovision Song Contest.
This year we have a very special winner:

Conchita Wurst, the bearded lady, winner of the Eurovision Song Contest 2014


Conchita Wurst is a Singer from Austria. In normal life it's a man, but on stage he performs as the bearded lady. She wants to make a statement to the world: it doesn't matter if you are man, woman, gay or straight, just be who you are. Let's live in peace together...

I'm very happy she won with this statement. it's promising. Yay for Europe! You can listen to her song here. It gave me goose pimpels. Also fun to tell the Netherlands were second.

I liked Conchita's song too, there surely is something special in it. And striving for equality like this.. you need a lot of courage to do something like that. I found a nice Conchita drawing too, this time on a T-shirt: http://teespring.com/keepcalmgrowbeard :))
