EUROVISION 2022 – VIDEO REACTION to the outfits on the Turquoise Carpet

LIVE FROM TURIN AT EUROVISION SONG CONTEST 2022 - TURQUOISE CARPET We followed live from Turin - press - the Turquoise Carpet of Eurovision Song Contest 2022, and reacted to all the outfits from the artists participating in this year's event. Some of them were absolutely stunning and some others a bit less: we are still tying to figure out why many of the artists decided to wear black. Was it something related to the feeling of mourning coming from the war in Ukraine? Was it simply just a choice of fashion? Who knows? Big big big HANDS UP for Chanel in her revisited-red-sevillana style; for Blanco and Mahmood which were sexyness on a stick; for Michale Ben David and the entourage dressed in Israeli blue; for Ronela Hajati, which brought an astonishing outfit garnished with a rainbow fla...

Italy: protesters in the streets to support ZAN Anti Homotransphobia Bill

The Italian LGTB+ population and that huge majority of Italians that love and want Civil Rights for all, started a huge protest after Zan Bill got stopped during its run to become a law. Zan Bill - Anti Homotransphobia - had already been bounced, delayed and longly discussed before getting completely stopped two days ago in the Italian Senate, and unfortunately the images we saw of that vote, were images that could only belong to a nation of troglodytes. But Italy is not the country that those fascist political parties want to picture: Italy is a nation of good-hearted and civil people that have detached themselves from the politics long ago, and that show huge support to LGBT+ rights. From TV hosts to the Streets of the major cities, peaceful but impacting protests and messages have s...

Anti Homo-Transphobia bill in Italy gets completely stopped.

The journey from bill to law of what is known in Italy as DDL Zan (Anti Homo-transphobia bill) gets abruptly interrupted today. Twenty-three votes scuttled the Zan Bill. The centre-left was sure to have 149 votes on paper, but two abstained and 16 senators passed with the centre-right. The result was 154 votes for NO and 131 for YES, a ratio that was reversed compared to the theoretical starting point envisaged by the forces in the field.  From the Democratic Party, accusations were levelled at those belonging to the party of the Ex Prime-Minister, Mr. Matteo Renzi.  Now Ignazio La Russa (Far right party - Fratelli d’Italia) says: "There is a new majority". Dem leader Monica Cirinnà (famous for her battle to make a law on same sex marriages approved in Italy) said: "The centre-left ...

Eurovision Song Contest 2022 – Torino will host the event

Eurovsion 2022 has finally got a host city: Torino is the chosen one! We have been waiting a long time, bids have been made so far to guess which of all the beautiful Italian cities who were candidate to host Eurovision 2022, and finally here is the official news, that we can find also on La Repubblica : "RAI announced that Turin will host the event". Turin was the very first city who volunteered to host Eurovision 2022 soon after Måneskin won the Eurovision 2021 in Rotterdam, and guess what, this city won the event! Many Italian fans were hoping for Eurovision 2022 to be help in Milan, thanks also to all the easy accesses to the city and ways to move around. For Turin there will be many things to improve in order to host such a huge event, but Good Luck Torino, and don't f**...

Vatican VS Italy for LGBT+ rights

The State of Vatican has just started a sort of diplomatic war against Italy while the Italian Parliament gets ready to discuss a law against Homophobia. If Italy is a very socially advanced country where finally same-sex unions are granted by the legislation and have almost same rights as a heterosexual marriage, surely it is still not a country where the LGBT+ population is fully protected against discrimination and abuse We have already spoken here about the Zan Bill Proposal (aka DDL Zan) and that still, after more than year since the PM Alessandro Zan proposed this bill, and after the thousands of revisions that the entire bill received from the right and conservative opposition, the Italian Parliament was almost ready to start the final discussion in order to approve and pass the...

Eurovision 2021- EBU releases a press communication after useless and harmful speculations on Måneskin

Eurovision Song Contest 2021 crowned their winners last night with Måneskin taking the contest back to Italy, but the web is going mad and harmfully speculating over the use of drug by Damiano - singer of the band - during the Grand Final.     As we said in our previous article, during the Winner's press conference after the victory of Måneskin at Eurovision 2021, a Swedish person accredited as press - that we do not call journalist, because a real journalist would have never asked such a question -  asked the band if during the final of the competition, when the camera was filming them and saw Damiano bending towards the table for a few seconds, the lead singer was snorting cocaine.       The 2 seconds of video the haters went crazy about ca...

Eurovision 2021 – Måneskin wins and takes the contest back to Italy.

What an amazing night, this Grand Finale of Eurovision Song Contest 2021 with a so unexpected but wanted victory of the Italian Band Måneskin. It was looking almost impossible, given the high scores that Switzerland and France had reached by almost the end of the votes announcements... but Måneskin were finally able to bring the Eurovision Song Contest back to Italy after they last held it in 1990. This becomes the 3rd time that Italy wins Eurovision. https://youtu.be/msfdz_aksY8?t=13578 The performance started in such a great way, with the entire audience of the Ahoy Arena in Rotterdam, clapping and cheering for the band as if it was a real rock concert: Måneskin did deliver a great performance and showed that Italy rocks and can do it in such a great way. The band started playi...

Eurovision 2021 – Turquoise Carpet – The best 3 outfits of the day

Eurovision 2021 kicked off the most important week of the competition with the Turquoise Carpet in Rotterdam. TheGaylyMirror followed the ceremony and made a personal Top3 of the best outfits of the day. It has a been a very complicated start for the Competition Week of Eurovision 2021: the delegations from Iceland and Poland had someone of their teams who tested positive for Covid-19 and could attend the opening event. Due to the fact that the delegations of Romania and Malta are staying at the same hotel as the Polish team, as a precaution, they also could not attend the Turquoise Carpet. All the delegations will have to take PCR tests, and in case of negative results they will be allowed to participate live to each one's respective semifinal. But who had the best score for their ou...

Italian extreme-right wing Party blocking a proper law against homophobia

Lega Party and his leader, Matteo Salvini, are obstructing the discussion and the approval of the so called Zan bill, showing once again, how racist and homophobe they can be. The discussion of the Zan bill (that takes the name from the MP that first proposed it), has been stopped once again from Lega - the Italian extreme-right-party - because according to the leader, Matteo Salvini, "Italy does not need a new law regulating acts of homophobia, as laws in Italy already punish all acts of racism and hate and because this law is divisive and not foreseen by the government programme." This is what also, another fascist leader of the Italian Parliament - Giorgia Meloni - repeatedly affirms, adding also that if the Zan bill is approved, Italian citizens would loose every right to their...

Road To Eurovision: Italy, Portugal and San Marino’s Entries.

What a week for Eurovision Lovers like us! Three entries, three new songs, and 2 almost unexpected entries to the competition in Rotterdam. The very first big surprise was given to us by Sanremo 2021 - the Festival of Italian Song - that crowned Måneskin as the winners of this edition with their song "Zitti e Buoni". Since a few years now, this Italian selection also decides who will represent the country - that almost won ESC in 2019 with Soldi by Mahmoud - on the stage of Eurovision contest. Måneskin come almost as unexpected winners because of their music background which is rock, explicit and real and goes far from the classical pop, melodic song that Sanremo got all Italians used to.  This group will surely rock the stage in Rotterdam putting the audience to choose which rock t...
