Conchita Wurst (March 2014)

Austrian singer and gender illusionist who came to international attention when winning the Eurovision Song Contest 2014 in Copenhagen, Denmark with the song "Rise Like a Phoenix".

Tom Neuwirth studied fashion before embarking on a singing career through the 2007 casting show Starmania. He subsequently became a founding member of the short-lived boyband Jetzt Anders!. In 2011, Neuwirth began appearing as Wurst – a drag persona noted for her beard – and came second in the Austrian preselection for the Eurovision Song Contest 2012. Wurst was successfully selected to represent Austria at the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest 2014, where she proved victorious. Wurst's entry and victory courted controversy, being condemned by many of the continent's social conservatives and right-wingers who saw her performance as a promotion of LGBT rights.

Neuwirth describes himself as a gay man and uses female pronouns to describe his Wurst character, but male pronouns when referring to himself.
