The winner of the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest, Conchita Wurst, headlined the Life Ball in Vienna this weekend. Wurst made history when she won the competition in May, with many citing it to be a triumph for liberal values and acceptance.

Conchita Wurst headlined the 2014 Life Ball in Vienna that took place over the weekend. The Life Ball in Vienna is the biggest charity event in Europe supporting people with HIV or AIDS. The event is organized by the non-profit organization AIDS LIFE, which was founded in 1992 by Gery Keszler and Torgom Petrosian.

The event this year saw attendance from the world of show business to politics with such luminaries as Lindsay Lohan, Courtney Love, Ricky Martin, Kesha, Bill Clinton and Leona Lewis.

Conchita perfromed her winning song Rise Like a Phoenix in what has proven to be a meteoric rise in fame as her profile and presence on the international stage has rocketed since her historic Eurovision win in Copenhagen earlier this month.
