Conchita Wurst will appear at the London Book Fair this coming Wednesday to launch the English-language version of her autobiography.


Being Conchita will be published by John Blake Publishing Ltd this coming 7 May. It charts Conchita’s journey, from her rural childhood as Thomas Neuwirth in Upper Austria to her victory at the Eurovision Song Contest and her becoming a cultural icon, recognizable the world over. The book also contains a forward by fashion-designer and friend, Jean-Paul Gaultier.

The London Book Fair will be held at Kensington Olympia, and Conchita is due to appear at the John Blake stand at 2.15pm on Wednesday, 15 April.

Publishing director Rosie Virgo said:

We have extremely high hopes for this title. Conchita is a fascinating character and her story is incredibly moving.
