Unstoppable Conchita in Zurich and Dublin
VIENNA, AUSTRIA – Let’s be honest (and no offence to Loreen or Emelie), but no former Eurovision winner has been as popular as Conchita. In just 3 minutes on Copenhagen stage the lady instantly became a star, an icon that the whole continent is eager to meet.
Actually, in just 1 month, the Austria beared diva has been absolutely everywhere: from London, Vienna, Berlin, and Antwerp to Cannes Festival, from TV shows or private showcases to gay events… And her agenda is more than filled with new trips.
On Friday 13th, in the core of the “Gay Pride season”, Conchita Wurst stopped in Switzerland for the Zurich Pride. She didn’t just perform but she also gave a press conference and an interview to Swiss Television and was later awarded the “The Conchita Wurst Unstoppable Award”. President David Reichlin was delighted Conchita accepted the invitation for the 20th anniversary of the Zurich Pride and declared that the message the Austrian artist is delivering is well worth an award! It’s also worth mentioning, the Drag Queen did not ask for any money for her appearance tonight despite her growing fame. Respect!
Another date has to be kept in mind, June 27th. That night, Conchita will appear at “The George” night club in the Irish capital city, as part of the 2014 Dublin Pride. Conchita has one goal, which is spreading her tolerance message all over our continent. You bet she does with such an agenda. In a nutshell let’s say that Lady Tolerance is truly unstoppable.
