Conchita Wurst continues to rack up the airmiles. Following performances at gay pride events in London and Spain, Europe’s new Queen of Tolerance is headed to Manchester Pride. Madam Sausage will join All Saints, Anastacia and Rowetta at the festival on Saturday, August 23.

“We’re delighted to announce some great new artists, joining the already confirmed stellar line up for the 2014 Big Weekend,” Mark Fletcher, chief executive of Manchester Pride, said during the announcement. “We’re especially excited Conchita Wurst will be joining us following her stand out performance at Eurovision.”

“With this year’s Pride Fringe seeing a number of high profile events, the return of the Gaydio Dance Arena, and even more surprises in store, there’s a lot to love at Manchester Pride this year.”

Former X-Factor contestants Marcus Collins and Lucy Spraggan and former Happy Mondays singer Rowetta will also perform.

Madame Sausage? Seriously, have some respect. That’s just proof of a poor writer, nothing more. (I have noticed Wiwibloggs writing deteriorating over time, though, so no surprise I suppose).

she is great but it’s a shame she will never build a career outside the LGTB community. She is talented and her songs are awesome.

Seriously, @beccaboo1212: You don’t have to say you dislike Conchita every time there is a Conchita article. She is a big Eurovision star and the reigning Eurovision winner so she is going to be everywhere and you can’t change that! Just ignore her if you aren’t inerested.

@Beccaboo: I think it is a marvellous idea to work as a humanitarian (if you know what the word means) while she is famous. There is no equality and human rights in every part of Europe. If Conchita’s values are not the same as yours, you don’t have to squeak about it whenever Team Wiwi is having some news about CW here. You need somebody to ease your mind and anxiety and show you how wonderful a place this world is with people’s diversity and love all over.
