Many Americans still don't know what Eurovision is so let me explain :tiffdrink_miss_ms_ny_new_york_drinking_sips_sipping_tea_straw: First of all, it's huge in Europe. Every country in Europe; Australia, few countries from Asia choose their representative artist and their song, performance every year. They just perform their song live and everyone sees it on TV, live-stream on YT etc. (you can easily find almost every contest on YT in high quality) and people vote for the best, there's also jury that gives points but people hate em cause they suck. Two days for semi-finals and one day for finale. It is aired in a lot of countries, even these homophobic as hell. It's good as the contest is really LGBT-friendly. It's a really big event in Europe, like UEFA EURO, it unites countries for a moment. This contest has existed since 1956 and it gave us a lot of hits, amazing songs and big artists like ABBA, Celine Dion. There's also a lot of cringy moments when songs countries perform suck but it's fun :hahaha_tiffany_ny_new_york_ms_miss_cackle_laugh_lol_haha_hehe_lmao: When a country wins - the next contest happens in their country.

Throwback when drag queen Conchita Wurst won Eurovision 2014 with her powerful song ''Rise Like a Phoenix'' about acceptance etc. Imagine drag queen performing on TV in extremely homophobic countries and she wins thanks to people's votes & jury :urite_wendy_williams_red_yes_earrings_nod_proud_wow_impressed: Big moment for LGBT community. But people were mad AS HELL. It was terrible. Everyone were talking about it in Europe no matter if comments were positive or negative.  

 

There's a lot of different LGBT artists with good songs like:

- winner in 2019 (he has a fiance rn so he's taken, girls & boys :crying1_britney_sobbing_tears_2006_sad: tho his future husband is even hotter). This song went viral on TikTok, right?

 

- 2nd place in 2019. 

 

Transgender NikkieTutorials was one of the hosts this year.

& other LGBT people I don't remember :ohreallylol_tiffany_pollard_miss_ms_new_york_ny_laugh_lol_haha_lmao_hehe_cackle:

You as Americans probably see it as a not big deal but you have to remember that in Europe there's still a lot of extremely homophobic countries that would censor trans people, gay kiss etc. if it wasn't live.

Eurovision is the most entertaining music event in the world right now  :makeitrain_britney_blush_headphones_omg_wow_happy:  There’s so much diversity and you can always discover interesting artists from different countries that if it wasn’t for the show you probably wouldn’t ever know.

Does Mahmood have a fiance? I don’t think he has. A simple google search couldn’t find him. :clicktina_xtina_christina_aguilera_mouse_computer:

Oh true. My reading skills suck, sorry. :britdrown_britney_tears_crying_drown_ink_black:

But yeah Mahmood is also queer and has an album coming out in a couple of weeks!

For the sake of staying on topic, I don't know if Americans know Loreen, but they should! Euphoria was huge in Europe and it should have charted in the US. The performance is better than anything we've seen at the Grammys in years.

Not you forgetting to mention when Serbia won with Molitva sung by Marija Serifovic... it was a huge deal because she is openly gay, which is rare to see in serbian media

+ this drag legend:
