Former RuPaul’s Drag Race contestant Courtney Act has lost the chance to represent Australia at the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest with her song  “Fight for Love”. She was beaten on Saturday by Kate Miller-Heidke and her song “Zero Gravity” which you can see below.

Australia has been allowed to compete at the Eurovision Song Contest since 2015, and there is a huge fanbase for the competition in the country.

Meanwhile French contestant Bilal Hassani–who is apologetically queer– is facing a wave of hatred in his home country after securing the coveted spot to represent France at Eurovision. He has been the subject of homophobic harassment on social media, French LGBT rights groups denounced.

  1. 36k negative votes on the YouTube video is some serious hate. I don’t know that the song is all that great, but the presentation was very good.
