I’m one of those people who believes Austrian singer Conchita Wurst has a long and illustrious career ahead of her. That’s because she’s not only a talented singer and a fascinating person, she’s also intelligent and funny and is a woman with a mission.
That mission is to change the way people think – not just for tolerance and acceptance for gay people. but tolerance and acceptance for everyone. No matter who they are, how they look, or where they come from.
In a new interview with French newspaper Le Monde, filmed last weekend while she was at La Fête de la Musique, Conchita talks about the comments politicians and other high-profile people have made about her and her Eurovision Song Contest win.
She also talks about what she wants to do besides just sing – “I just want to change the way of thinking in every kind of way. Not just about sexuality. Also about where you’re from. This also is not necessary”.
