Conchita Wurst did not only win our hearts at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest 2014, she also set a much needed political statement of equality, love and respect.
All the petitions running against Austria’s candidate of choice could not change the European feeling of unity when the winner was announced. Not only Austria celebrated, but everyone who has the same ideals at heart: equality, love and respect for everyone.

This was a big step for the LGBT community, so let’s go from there and show each other some love and respect.
