Eurovision 2017!

The Eurovision Song Contest 2017 is history. Salvador Sabral won the ESC for Portugal, beating Bulgaria and Moldova in the finals. Belgium came in fourth ahead of Sweden in fifth place. You can check out the full results here.

I wasn’t impressed by Sabral’s initial performance but the duet of the winning song with his sister and producer Luisa was actually quite nice. You can listen to the song on YouTube.

Probably more interesting to the audience of this blog were the two 17-year-old contestants though ;) Isaiah Firebrace was the first Aboriginal male to represent Australia at the ESC and he did quite well as you can see and hear below. Australia had a second moment of (questionable) glory later on by the way… click here to see it, slightly NSFW ;)

Super sweet too: Bulgaria’s entry Kristian Kostov with his aptly titled song Beautiful Mess which you can also check out below.

His song wasn’t exactly revolutionary but he’s such a bundle of cuteness and charisma that it’s incredibly hard not to root for him. I wish I could find the little intro/image film they played before his performance; if anyone can get their hands on it, please share it in the comments! This ins’t the one, but it’s still very cute.

Hold Tight!

milkboys Clips & Spots 7 Comments

It’s a feeling most queer people face at some point. Even if you’re out and completely comfortable with your sexuality, holding hands with a partner in public can still feel awkward and tense. Sometimes, it’s easier to just let go. That’s what the campaign #HoldTight is about…

The ad seems especially important for queer people in Australia now. The country has yet to legalize same-sex marriage and political candidates have some pretty concerning ideas about what being LGBTQ means. Read on…

Itchy Showers

Prank videos aren’t exactly the epitome of quality content on YouTube but every now and then they’re good for something. Like… teenies in the shower. I need to ask you though not to pause the video at 4;44. That would make you a perv.
