Early this month Conchita Wurst won the Eurovision Song Contest, a TV 
show similar to “American Idol” but covering the European continent. 
Wurst is the stage name of Thomas Neuwirth, a bearded transvestite who 
wowed audiences with a number he wrote called “Rise Like a Phoenix”.

If you forget about the gown he wears, he would be indistinguishable 
from other androgynous stars like Prince or Turkey’s Tarkan. Strictly 
speaking, he performs as a man rather than in the female impersonator 
style of “La Cage aux Folles”.

Wurst is not very popular in Russia or Belarus, a neighbor of Russia 
that is even more committed to traditional values. In Belarus, a 
petition campaign directed to the very Orwellian sounding Ministry of 
Information complained:

"The popular international competition will see our children filled with 
European liberals become a hotbed of sodomy! Belarus, one of the few 
countries in Europe that was able to maintain normal and healthy family 
values based on love and mutual support between men and women!"
