“This night is dedicated to everyone who believes in a future of peace and freedom. You know who you are – we are unity and we are unstoppable.”
– Conchita Wurst, a.k.a. The Bearded Lady, while accepting the Eurovision 2014 trophy on Saturday night, as reported by by The Independent. Ms. Wurst was attacked with a slew of transphobic and homophobic slurs in the weeks leading up to last night’s victory.

Another quote, as reported by The Independent:

“The beard is a statement to say that you can achieve anything, no matter who you are or how you look.”
