One half of German pop duo Rosenstolz, popular for their characteristic mix of radio-friendly Krautrock, electro pop and kitschy chanson ballads. It took them 11 albums before getting a chart topper with “Gib Mir Sonne” but, together with (straight) AnNa R, Peter has been pleasing the gay club and cabaret scene since 1991. Made it onto the national stage in 1998, when they placed second in the German national final for the 1998 Eurovision Song Contest. “At last, straight men don’t have to feel ashamed of liking Rosenstolz,” AnNa R quipped as a reaction. But just how many straight men will own up to liking Eurovision?
