The 10 Most Ambiguously Gay Eurovision Acts Ever

Let’s be perfectly clear: To our knowledge, none of these singers is gay, openly or otherwise. But that doesn’t mean people haven’t wondered, whispered or wished. Some of these guys (and gals) have set off the world’s collective gaydar, some have sparked persistent gay rumors, some have actively flirted with gay audiences, and some have simply set gay hearts aflutter. We’ll leave it to you to figure out who’s who.

1  Shake It | Sakis Rouvas (Greece, 2004)
Stealing a page from the Paul Oscar playbook, sexy Sakis Rouvas surrounds himself with barely clad girls in the video for 2004 Greek entry “Shake It,” and yet still reads as deeply gay. Is it a shameless act of gay-baiting? We don’t really care, please just let us keep watching. One of Greece‘s biggest celebrities and an active supporter of LGBT rights, Rouvas took 3rd place with this song at Eurovision 2004. He returned in 2009 with “This Is Our Night”, which took 7th place in that year’s final.

There will be a pre-show VIP reception at 6:30 P.M. and the performance will begin at 8:00 P.M. The evening is written and hosted by Justin Sayre and directed by Peter James Cook.

Russian Lawmaker Accuses Apple of Distributing Gay Porn Thanks to the Free U2 Cover Art

While many of us found ourselves confused when a random song began to play on our iPhones, most didn’t look at their screen and freak out because of the album-cover photo, most freaked out because there was a mysterious U2 album on it. In Russia, though, the free album that was given to all iPhone users who updated their phones, was seen as violating anti-gay propaganda laws because the album cover shows the band’s drummer Larry Mullen Jr with his 18-year-old son Elvis—both shirtless.. The concern comes form Alexander Starovoitov, a member of the right-wing LDPR party, who felt that the album “Songs of Innocence” ‘corrupted’ youths. Starovoitov says he’s ready to sue Apple for breaking the controversial and discriminatory Russian anti-gay law. “I, like many Russian citizens, own an iPhone. In 2014, the band U2 forced my phone to download their new album. Their cover album depicts two men, which in my view, depicts the expression of a non-traditional sexual relationship to each other.
