Notes on Eurovision 'Camp'

I don’t usually watch the Eurovision Song Contest, but my Greek partner’s mother is staying with us at the moment and Saturday’s show provided an irresistible opportunity for some pan-generational, pan-European viewing. It was also more interesting than expected, with Conchita Wurst’s victory providing an added political dimension, as well as moving the competition outside of its normal confines of camp. For my thoughts on her victory, please click through to the article ‘On Camp & Conchita’, which was published in the Quietus today.
