June is the international month of Pride around the world (or at least in the northern hemisphere anyway).

Eurovision is a safe space for many in the LGBTIQ+ communities and an event not to be missed.

Michael, Liam and Io share some queer Eurovision classics, along with some newer tracks from favourite queer contestants, in this Pride special.

How did Conchita help Io on their journey?

What’s with the Nordic openness to all things queer?

Why do we think queer communities are drawn to the contest?

Are there any pride classics that we missed? Share them on the socials.
