OA | Sofi Marinova to Sofia Pride

++ Gay men and Eurovision, a happy match apparently ++ Cyprus out next year? ++ Brits worried about Jedward's spending ++..

We've been reporting quite a lot about Stockholm Pride recently, but don't want to forget countries where Pride evenst even have a bigger role to play where it comes to the acceptance of gay and lesbian people. This year's Bulgarian representative at the Eurovision Song Contest, Sofi Marinova, is attending the pride festivities in Sofia. She and last year's Poli Genova are even doing their gigs free of charge to support the gay rights movement in the country. The fifth Sofia gay parade will take place on 30 June.


OA | Loreen cares!

Some people accused Loreen's visit to a human right's group in Baku during her Eurovision stay, because it wuld be too populist. But now weeks after the contest, she proves that she still cares. She wrote the following on her Facebook account this Friday: 

- After our meetings with Azeri human rights defenders in Baku we hoped that the situation for them would improve. But now we see the opposite. One of the brave human rights defenders that we met, Mehman Huseynov, is accused of hooliganism and risks 5 years in jail! Mehman is a young photojournalist and he was just doing this job covering a demonstration for freedom during the Eurovision week in Baku.

And then refers to this article.


OA | Allsång coming up!

++ Revealing the artists for Sweden's second most popular music show ++ Payback time in Baku? ++ MGP kicks off in Steinkjer ++ ..

Skansen, the open air museum in central Stockholm exposing the cultural heritage of Sweden, is the location for the second most popular Music show on Swedish television: Allsång på Skansen. A sing-a-long format with a line up that normally makes many a Eurovision  or rather Melodifestivalen fan wanting to live in the Northern country. The format is so popular that it already has two spinoffs, one broadcast from Gothenburg and one in Norway called Allsang På Grensen.

Yesterday the performers on this year's edition of the show have been revealed by SVT. Måns Zelmerlöw will be hosting the show again, like last year. Here are some of the artists that might be interesting for you: 


Armenia and 17 others return

Eighteen countries have confirmed their participation next year already, and Liechtenstein might be a newcomer.

For obvious reasons, Armenia could not participate in this year's Eurovision Song Contest. Well, actually they could have if the Azerbaijani government had guaranteed the safety of the Armenian delegation. But because the two countries are technically still at war with each other, the Armenians apparently couldn't find an artist that dared to make the trip to Baku. This weekend, ARMTV in Armenia made a statement that they will be on the list of participants next year in Sweden.
