Happy pride! The Eurovision off season can be a drag, so let’s talk about drag at Eurovision!

First up, we check in with how Eurovision 2019 prep is going. Short version: it’s been three weeks; cool yer beans. There have been a couple of Eurovision sightings in the US, including “Toy” in Times Square and San Marino(?) on the Billboard Charts(????).
