Conchita Wurst to Headline Pride in London
Pride in London announced this evening that Eurovision winner Conchita Wurst will be the headline performer at Pride in London in Trafalgar Square on 28th June.
The announcement was made at 1800 on Explovia - London's going out app - which is a partner of Pride in London, promoting the festival of events that make up Pride week.
Conchita Wurst said: "I am really looking forward to seeing you all at Pride in London. Let us be proud about who we are and let us give a statement for love, respect and tolerance. And most of all let us be proud and think about those LGBTI people around the world, who can't make a Gay Pride in their countries."
Michael Salter, Chair of Pride in London said: "Conchita is an incredible example of the power of having the #freedomto be oneself. Winning Eurovision, she raised the profile of the LGBT+ community across a continent and sent an important political message. We are thrilled that she is coming to celebrate Pride in London."
