Russia Profile: “Of Lyrics, Nationalism, and Gay Pride” (Eurovision in Moscow)

Russia Profile’s “Of Lyrics, Nationalism, and Gay Pride” gives a good summary of the recent Eurovision 2009 events in Russia discussing Stephane and 3G, Prikhod’ko and the planned gay pride parade (which Luzhkov, Moscow’s mayor is against) to be staged during the Eurovision contest.

For more reading on Prikhod’ko check out Kalle Kniivilä’s Domstol förbjöd ukrainska Melodifestivalen and Far From Moscow’s Let the Eurovision Scandals Begin and my earlier post on Stephane and 3G.
