Music is a force for reaching across barriers and bringing light to the world. Thirsty for Eurovision co-hosts Raúl Rojas and Cody Sisco chat with Bella Qvist and Olivia LePoidevin, the English-language commentators for the 2022 Swedish song contest, Melodifestivalen. We explore their "Melofest" experiences, their earliest memories of Eurovision, and the songs that will linger long after a winner is announced. This is a celebration of international queer cultural exchange that Eurovision makes possible. Stay tuned to the end for reflections on the American and Canadian song contest and how they measure up on the LGBTQ scale set by Eurovision's example.
Thirsty for Eurovision is a celebration of Eurovision music, culture, theatricality, and queerness. Hosts Cody Sisco and Raúl Rojas are thirsty and passionate about the event, fans, creators and major players in this event.
