Austrian drag queen Conchita Wurst will perform at the United Nation's Vienna headquarters on Monday.

The winner of the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest, real name Tom Neuwirth, will perform before UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon delivers a major address on LGBT rights.

A UN spokesperson applauded Wurst's upcoming appearance.

“Everyone is entitled to enjoy the same basic rights and live a life of worth and dignity without discrimination. This fundamental principle is embedded in the UN Charter and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Conchita is a symbol in that sense and I think it's good for them to meet. This meeting will allow Ki-moon to reassert his support for LGBT people and for them to ensure that they enjoy the same human rights and protection that we all do,” the spokesperson said.

Wurst, who performs with a full beard and also goes by “the bearded lady,” won Eurovison with the power ballad Rise Like a Phoenix.
