One thought on “Quotes of the day: Conchita Wurst

  1. Absolutely! Heck, I’m “straight” but I, too, “believe in a future of peace and freedom” and I hope I am part of the “unity”. I totally admire what Conchita has done in provoking comment with the “bearded lady” persona, but I also admire that Europe as a whole (including some Easter European areas) have voted overwhelmingly in support of inclusivity
