Nemo, Eurovision’s first nonbinary winner, gets a hero’s welcome in Switzerland

Swiss Eurovision fans on May 12 gave a hero’s welcome to singer Nemo, who won the 68th Eurovision Song Contest with “The Code,” an operatic pop-rap ode to the singer’s journey toward embracing a nongender identity.

The singer, who is Swiss but currently lives in Berlin, landed in Zurich the day after the competition wrapped up in Malmo, Sweden.

Switzerland’s contestant beat Croatian rocker Baby Lasagna to the title by winning the most points from a combination of national juries and viewers around the world.
