    He is a drag queen... with a beard.
    Before creating the Conchita persona, he was in a short-lived boy band.
    He sometimes calls himself a bearded lady.
    Some fans draw on beards to show their support.
    After he was chosen to represent Austria at Eurovision, an anti-Wurst Facebook page got 31,000 likes.
    Petitions to edit him out of the Eurovision broadcast circulated in Russia and Belarus, claiming that his performance would make Eurovision 'a hotbed of sodomy.'
    He noted, 'The funny thing is that ten years ago Russia sent two lesbian girls to Eurovision.'
    He said, 'I have a very thick skin. It's just strange that a little facial hair causes that much excitement.'
    He locked up first place at Eurovision before the last three countries' votes were revealed.
    He said, 'I wanted to shout out to the world, 'Do whatever you want and be whoever you want, as long as you are not hurting anybody.''
