As of December 2019, both Hungary and Montenegro pulled out of the Eurovision Song Contest 2020 because it had purportedly become 'too gay'. Both countries had criticized Conchita Wurst in 2014. Together with the lGBT-free zones proposed in Poland, it is exemplary of the liberal/illiberal culture clash which divides Eastern Europe from Western Europe."--Sholem Stein

The Eurovision Song Contest is an annual competition held among active member countries of the European Broadcasting Union (EBU).

Each member country submits a song to be performed on live television and then casts votes for the other countries' songs to determine the most popular song in the competition. Each country participates via one of their national EBU-member television stations, whose task it is to select a singer and a song to represent their country in the international competition.

The contest has been broadcast every year since its inauguration in 1956 and is one of the longest-running television programmes in the world and much appreciated by lovers of campy music.
