Eurovision: The Kiss Must Go On
Finland's Eurovision Song Contest entry, Krista Siegfrids, is set to perform her tribute to equality, Marry Me, ending with a kiss with one of her female dancers.
But, pressure is building for Eurovision to censor Krista's performance to appease homophobic broadcasters. Already, Turkey has refused to broadcast the show on air because of it!
Tell Eurovision's leadership to speak out for all people's right to freedom of expression and nondiscrimination. If they don't uphold these values at this critical moment, it will be harder for future performers and their supporters to express their art, ideas and identities freely.
To: Jean-Paul Philippot, President of the European Broadcasting Union
Speak out to support Krista and affirm that the Eurovision values of unity and love apply to everyone, no matter who they are or who they love. Please make sure this and future contests protect the freedom of expression of performers.
