On Saturday (10 May), perhaps one of the most visible and loved LGBTI contestants in recent years won the Eurovision Song Contest in Copenhagen, Denmark.
The crowd was behind Conchita Wurst all the way, chanting her name and cheering as she steadily edged her way to victory for Austria.
This was largely down to where she took the crown, performing in one of the most pro-gay countries in the world.
Denmark, like the majority of Scandinavia, is liberal and loving of its LGBTI community. But that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s perfect.
