Conchita Wurst: It’s annoying I’m still waiting for my right to marry

The Austrian diva, who headlined Pride in London last week, told The Outmost she is frustrated that “thousands of thousands” of people are having to wait for their right to marry.

She said: “This topic annoys me that much because for me I don’t need discussions… I don’t know what it takes to make this clear."

“I think it’s such an unimportant thing, it’s not necessary to talk about, because you’re allowed to love whoever you want to love and I don’t need a government that is like, ‘Well, you’re not allowed to and you’ve not got the same rights’. I’ll tell you what, of course I do!"

“I’m a human being and I have the same rights as everyone else, so I don’t need to discuss about that because it should be a common thing. So stop discussing, just make it equal."

“I don’t need a campaign, I just need decisions. I don’t need more time wasted. I’m not a politician, I don’t know how long it takes to make rights, but I’m one of thousands of thousands of people who are waiting.”

Same-sex marriage is not legal in Austria, but registered partnerships have been recognised since 2010. An opposition bill which would introduce same-sex marriage in the country – submitted in December – is set to be debated in the Autumn.
