Uzbek emerging rap star expresses attitude toward drag stage persona Conchita Wurst

It’s interesting how sometimes people from societies, where homosexuality is criminalized and LGBT communities are at high risk, after becoming ‘famous’ in their little stupid circles, claim they are expressing people’s opinion. MC Doni, a newcommer for Black Star Inc. label, released his single dedicated to his beard. The song is focused against drag stage persona Conchita Wurst, Austrian female singer with a beard who won Eurovision Song Contest 2014.

It’s interesting how sometimes people from societies, where homosexuality is criminalized and LGBT communities are at high risk, after becoming ‘famous’ in their little stupid circles, claim they are expressing people’s opinion.

MC Doni, a newcommer for Black Star Inc. label, released his single dedicated to his beard. The song is focused against drag stage persona Conchita Wurst, Austrian female singer with a beard who won Eurovision Song Contest 2014.

MC Doni, who’s ethnic Uzbek from Uzbekistan (just like Timati, the founder of Black Star Inc.) where male homosexuality is punished with imprisonment up to three years, suggests that if one doesn’t have a beard then he’s are a loser, but if one doesn’t have male genitals but wears a beard, then he’s not a man. Plus, women will say “Yes!” to those men who have beards. Pretty clear, right?

“If you shaved you beard, then cut your penis like Conchita”
Timati, Boroda


I doubt that in Uzbekistan, where authorities torture, throw in prisons, kill many innocent devoted Muslims, men would really want to drag additional attention by having a hairy face. Seriously, that stereotype of “Vovchik” (follower of “Wahhabi”) or “Hizbutchik” (follower of Hizb-ut-Tahrir party) starts with a super short beard and won’t end even if you shave it. Ask any Uzbek why they prefer not to have a beard. You’ll hear the same explanation.
