Eurovision 2024: The Top 20 of LGBTQIA+ voters



This week, we revealed the results of our public poll on the Eurovision songs of 2024.


400 people voted in our poll, given 1,993 "televote" points with the majority (67%) from outside Australia.


Baby Lasagna for Croatia took out the top spot and we also revealed the full list from 1st to 37th.


In the poll, we also captured the demographic information of voters so we could break down the results a little further.


Today, we look at which songs were favoured by the LGBTQIA+ community.


LGBTQIA+ voters


  • 45% of the voters identified themselves as part of the LGBTQIA+ community in the poll

  • 44% indicated they were not part of the community and 11% preferred not to say

  • 88% of the LGBTQIA+ voters were male


So the results representing the LGBTQIA+ community will be skewed towards men.
