Conchita Wurst announced as headline act for Pride in London

Joseph McCormick June 20, 2014

Organisers of Pride in London have announced that Eurovision winner Conchita Wurst will headline the festival.

The official pride Twitter account posted a picture of Wurst, the Austrian Eurovision winner, along with the announcement that she will headline on Saturday 28 June.

The lineup also includes Heather Peace, Samantha Fox and Sinitta.

Wurst will perform in Trafalgar Square at 5.40pm at the free event. More listings are available at the Pride in London listings page.

The star also posted a video of herself announcing that she will be in London for pride.

Wurst’s victory on Eurovision was met with outrage by several homophobic Russian politicians.

The president of Russia’s state-run rail corporation accused the West of imposing “pure propaganda” following Wurst’s victory.

She did, however inspire a butcher near her family home to create a sausage in her honour.
