Azerbaijan: Eurovision Pride

Scary Azeri comments on her country's success in this year's Eurovision Song Contest by saying that she doesn't understand how ecstatic many of her fellow Azerbaijanis are about their victory. In particular the blog notes the high level of poverty in the country while also wondering if Eurovision fans from Armenia or representatives of LGBT communities worldwide will be well received for next year's contest in Baku, the capital.
