Beautiful!!! He so totally earned it!

To paraphrase Martin Luther King Jr., here is still hope that one day people will not be judged by their outward, physical appearance or sexual orientation, but by their talents and the content of their character.

Except in Texas. I've given up all hope for that state.

I don't know, I think (politically and religiously speaking) Kansas is worse than any state. The only positive thing they seem to cling to is wind power (but only because it's a $2 billion Industry).

...What's the connection between being a "drag queen" and having won? Are "drag queens" somehow unable to sing? :S

Wayne Jayne County is a drag queen. I have a 25 song collection on CD. The cover looked freaky so I got it. Not bad for punk.

An easy reminder why women don't have facial hair -- at least not like the average male.

Yeah, Kansas is pretty bad, too.

It's not whether they can or can't sing, but it makes me wonder if the same result would have happened if it he was trying to win the spot to represent the USA. I highly doubt he would have. :-\

See, the difference here is that most USA citizens are bigots, to say the least. Which is not to say Europe doesn't have any. Just that a panel of judges is probably chosen for their impartiality, while voters are just given the ability to vote indiscriminately (when they reach a certain age), even if they're dumber than the average bacterium.

True. One of the things mentioned in the 2nd video I found heartening was that 13 countries (I don't know out of how many total) awarded him "maximum points", whatever that means. But it sounds positive.

Here in America, I still remember the uproar from conservatives/Christians when President Obama appointed Amanda Simpson (a transgendered woman) as a Senior Technical Advisor to the Commerce Department, which in of itself was a huge step forward.

Maximum points means 12. The Eurovision is notoriously political. Russia got booed. See if you can work out how the voting works from this article.

http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/music/news/eurovision-2014-voting-controversy-after-uk-jury-revealed-to-place-conchita-first--but-british-public-voted-for-donatan--cleo-9351644.html

The UK public wanted the Poles to win, because they had big tits, but the panel voted for Conchita. I think there is a panel of progressive judges that keep the lid on certain aspects of  the political fight, or the whole thing would fall apart.

I just watched the Polish entry that the British and Irish liked. It's basically a racist anthem, extolling the virtues of slavic breasts. The guy who wrote it would like to unify the big titted states.

I saw less than a minute of her semi final performance and thought she'd win. Good on her.

I also enjoyed Iceland's performance.

The Polish performance led to a stream of breast puns on my Facebook feed.

Always an amusing couple of hours of TV.

Last time there was a worthwhile winner was 2006 ... These days, it's almost always the country that shows most T&A that wins, hence the Polish entry (I guess, as I haven't actually seen it ... Only seen Belgium, Netherlands and Austria ... And all three were dreadful)
In 87 or 88, MTV did a sort of shadow song festival that was way better than the real one, sadly it was a one off thing.
