Australia looks like "gay heaven" to the rest of the world but the reality is somewhat different as Austrian drag queen Conchita Wurst discovered on her first visit. "You know, we think everybody is very liberal, very open-minded, the whole city [is] celebrating Mardi Gras," Wurst said. "And then I came here two years ago and they told me that gay marriage is just not happening," Conchita Wurst has received both praise and criticism since winning the 2014 Eurovision song contest. "I could not believe it. How can you combine those two worlds?"
