Gordon to quit Eurovision if gay demo banned

Gordon, one of the three Toppers representing the Netherlands in this year’s Eurovision song festival, says he will pull out of the competition if Moscow breaks up a gay rights march planned for Saturday.

The Telegraaf reports that Gordon will step on the first plane back from Moscow if the march is broken up. Moscow’s mayor has banned the rally.
The Toppers, representing Holland with the song Shine, will find out on Thursday if they qualify for Saturday’s final.
