SPAIN – Chanel Terrero lives her great moment and is one of the most admired Spaniards after a third place in Eurovision that tastes like victory. It was inevitable that she would give the Pride proclamation at the Madrid celebration that she will experience this coming weekend, her parade, which María del Monte and Boris Izaguirre will comment on TVE.
The Eurovision artist, an example of self-respect and so focused that she overcame months of haters and negative comments about her work, has also lived up to her mission in a crowded Pedro Zerolo square, in the heart of the Chueca neighbourhood. In the square, the assembled public, who did not leave a gap, sang Como yo te amo in homage to Rocío Jurado.
On the podium, Chanel has claimed: “the freedom to love whoever you want” in a message for “sexual diversity” and the “unity of minorities”. “It takes years to get rights and it’s too easy to lose them in a moment,” she remarked.
The Barcelonan singer and dancer who lives in Madrid since her transition to the professional world 16 years ago, wore a dress with the colours of the rainbow, designed by Hervé Léger. A woman with a multicoloured flag spoke of the racist harassment she suffered as a child. Bullying has made her over the years “a woman sure of herself and of the values that have been instilled in me.”
She asserted that she is a fighter for LGBTI rights, she does not label herself with any sexual identification, and the time has come “to turn insults into proud shouts.” A situation so which “a kiss between two women is not a source of conflict”. Precisely there was some controversy over the kiss that she had with a partner in her dance group, María from Seville, at the conclusion of the happy performance on May 14 in Turin.
Chanel has a partner, a dancer and a music producer, Bastian Iglesias. Together they were in Mallorca on a getaway after the success of Eurovision. Both participate in the musical montage of Nacho Cano Malinche, who also had his moment yesterday on the occasion of this proclamation by Chanel, a show that will premiere in Madrid in September.
