The UK’s first Muslim drag queen Asifa Lahore releases her self-penned debut single ‘You And I’ and has Eurovision 2015 aspirations.
Asifa Lahore said
“You may have seen me trying to discuss the topic of faith and sexual identity on the BBC Three show ‘Free Speech’ earlier this year, and subsequently in the press. Since then I have appearing on BBC World News with leading Bollywood actress Celina Jaitly and an array of British Asian community channels talking openly about LGBT issues.”
Lahore has spent the summer recording original material in the UK, America and Sweden. The result is a new EP. The first release from the EP is ‘You and I’ and she has entered it for the BBC Open Submission for Eurovision 2015.
Following the success of Conchita Wurst at Eurovision this year Asifa has decided to speak out about being a member of the LGBT and Muslim community and try and take that message to Eurovision.
Is Eurovision ready for another drag artist?
