Krista Siegfrids performed her song ‘Marry Me’ at Eurovision In Concert in Amsterdam, and kissed her back up in protest against Finland’s ban on gay marriage
From her interview with The Independent:

"I don’t think ‘Marry Me’ is political, it’s about love and tolerance. But gay marriage is not allowed in Finland and that’s wrong. I wanted to make a statement about that."
The European Broadcasting Union may ban the controversial conclusion to Siegfrids’s performance – a “gay kiss” with her female dance team – to appease broadcasters in Eastern Europe, where homophobia still thrives. The Russian parliament passed a bill outlawing “homosexual propaganda” in March.
Siegfrids said: "Homophobic people are angry with me for doing this. But I’m planning a surprise at the end of my performance. It’s live on TV, so nobody can stop me."
