  1. We’ll see. Maybe all the attention focused on Moscow for Eurovision will shame the authorities into behaving themselves.

  2. I doubt it. The contest should be boycotted by the LGBT communities everywhere and not least by the nations competing.

  3. “Wossname” you are right. At this years’ Eurovision in Belgrade, Serbia a colleague of mine and I were beaten up by skinheads in a restaurant. We were a bit “reckless” by wearing our press accreditations on our neck. Unfortunately media in Serbia wasn’t helpful by calling the event a “faggot ball”… and this was front page.
    On the bottom line, countries with a very poor human rights and media protection record should not be able to host an event where a majority of the attendants are gay. But to be honest I don’t think the EBU cares that much. I believe Moscow will be as dangerous as Belgrade and I urge everyone to think twice before going. You could end up in a hospital as I did…
