This is a great, dramatic diva song and Conchita Worst delivers it with potency. But what I love the most about this video is that in no way is it ever mentioned or explained that she is or why she is a drag queen with a beard. I don't think we are allowed to say "gender-f#ck" any more, but it was said used with pride by pioneering SF drag troupe The Cockettes. Conchita is pretty, and even looks a little like a bearded Kim Kardashian. Or Kim pre-waxing! But by not mentioning the unusual look, we are forced to focus on the music. That's a nice change!
