BACKSTAGE MAY 16: SECOND SEMIFINAL BROADCAST IN DOUBT
Turkey is not participanting this year at the Eurovision, but still TRT decided to boardcast the contest. But it is very questionable if tonight’s show is going to aired. The problem is the kiss that is going to happen at the end of Finish performance. TRT said that they won’t air second semifinal because they think that the rates will be to small. They must have forgotten that Azerbaijan is also performing tonight. But KAOS GL, biggest Turkish LGBT rights organization, said that the rates are just an excuse for TRT’s ‘institutionalized homophobia’.
