Conchita Wurst speaks to INFE USA

conchitaConchita Wurst was selected to represent Austria in the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest 2014 in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Keith Brooks, a member of INFE USA, had the opportunity to do an interview with Conchita Wurst via Skype and 10 INFE USA members were selected to ask questions to Conchita herself. Watch the video and see who is her role model, who is her favorite Eurovision entrant and what she thinks of the LGBT community.

Conchita herself admitted to be very happy and overwhelmed by the American fans and support. We would live to wish Conchita Wurst the best of luck!

Due to unforeseen technical difficulties, the video clip is only available as Audio 

Here are the questions that were submitted:

Tyler Albarado, Texas – Who is your biggest inspiration for her act/style?

Melissa Kutcher, Iowa Do you think that Eurovision will help change the way the LGBT community will be accepted in the world?

Luis De La Cruz, California – What is the hardest thing about joining the business?

Misha Raber, Missouri – What does Eurovision mean to you?

Kevin Holmes, Virginia – Dear Conchi:  how would you use song to influence positively the positions of governments in Russia, Nigeria and Uganda to improve the lives of their LGBT citizens?

Javier Serrano, California – All participants want to win the Eurovision Song Contest, be that as it may; what are your obligations as an artist to perform particularly well for your country?
