LGBTQ groups call for Eurovision boycott

Campaigners for gay, lesbian and transgender rights have urged a boycott of this year’s Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv.

More than 60 LGBTQ groups from around the world have joined a new call to demonstrate solidarity with Palestinians.

In a statement, the groups accuse Israel of «shamelessly using the Eurovision competition» to distract from war crimes, electronicintifada.net reports.
