Dana International brings pro-LGBT message to Eurovision stage
Former Eurovision winner Dana International returned to the stage of the singing competition, bringing a kiss-cam to celebrate love in all its forms. Dana International, who led Israel to Eurovision victory in 1998 with the song “Diva,” performed “Just the Way You Are” by Bruno Mars on the first day of the Eurovision Semi-Finals on Tuesday (May 14). The competition is being held in Tel Aviv, Israel, after the victory of Israeli performer Netta Barzilai in 2018—according to Eurovision rules, the winning country gets to host the competition the following year. As Dana International sang, a heart-shaped kiss cam scouted the audience for lovebirds—finding many same-sex couples, who happily embraced.
