Austrian drag icon Conchita Wurst, winner of the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest, is embracing her gender fluidity by going topless (save two chest patches!) on the cover of Rolling Stone Germany.
The “You Are Unstoppable” singer promoted herself on the July cover in a tweet yesterday, saying she was honored to be recognized by the International music authority:

In the cover story, titled “Take the plunge! Conchita is living the difference,” Wurst spoke about the world’s shifting attitudes toward LGBT equality.
“I think there are many people who have internalized tolerance now, who want to understand how other people live. But it’s still a long way until we arrive,” she said. “Many people don’t have any connection to the lesbian-gay-transgender community and aren’t aware of many things. This is the root for insecurities and aggressiveness.”
