The Eurovision Song Contest may have been cancelled, but we know lots of you will still be celebrating Eurovision with your friends at virtual parties across the country.

If you’re hosting an online party with friends, why not include our Eurovision quiz as part of the fun? We’ve put together four rounds of questions - let’s see how good your Eurovision knowledge really is! Answers are at the bottom of this page (no cheating!)

Please consider donating to akt and help us support LGBTQ+ young people who are facing homelessness or who are living in an unsafe environment during this difficult time.

Euro-fan Nick Slater has written his own Eurovision entry to raise funds for akt!

“Growing up as an LGBTQ+ young person, I hid my identity from my friends and family for years. Watching the Eurovision Song Contest each year was a key moment for me in understanding that I wasn’t alone and embracing and accepting who I was. For millions of young people around the world, Eurovision provides an opportunity to see LGBTQ+ identities represented and actively celebrated, and at times when we feel divided, it reminds us that we are stronger together.”
