CONCHITA WURST, JUSTIN BIEBER, MASHROU’ LEILA
Coming out as HIVpositive following a blackmail threat hasn’t dulled the sparkle of this queer survivor! Back in 2014, this Austrian man with a beard and an evening gown won Eurovision with Rise Like A Phoenix. Russia’s orthodox religious leaders (also men with beards and gowns) described Conchita as “an abomination”. Ever since, she has championed the cause and remains the sexiest bearded rebel in pop.
