Männer (Men), Germany’s most-read gay lifestyle magazine, has put Azerbaijan’s Eurovision 2015 star Elnur Huseynov on the cover of its May issue. It’s not just because plenty of readers find him attractive. It’s because editors at the mag believe Elnur and his song “Hour of the Wolf” deserve to win.
“In the May issue of MEN it’s all about the Sausage – and her potential successors,” they write of reigning winner Conchita Wurst. And who might that be? The cover gives you a major clue. They also praise Elnur’s ability to work five and a half octaves — just like Mariah Carey.
Note: Elnur himself is not gay, but is supportive of all people. He didn’t realise that he’d appear in the magazine or on the front of it. Here’s a Tweet he sent to wiwibloggs:
