This will, an Interior Ministry spokesman explained, "take the pressure off parents to commit themselves to gender immediately after birth" - thus allowing for greater delay before drastic, life-defining and perhaps mistaken surgery is carried out on an infant too young to decide for itself what it wants to be.

Such legal acknowledgement of the existence of intersex conditions, which have been known about for all recorded history, comes surprisingly late.

Germany is the first country in Europe, and only the second in the world after Australia, to pass such a law.

But we were already fans of Conchita before we saw her sizzle on stage.

Earlier in the day we caught up with her to discuss how long it takes her to put on her face, what it’s like to swim with a painted-on beard, and the fact that she is transgender.

“[Dana International] is a transgender person and it’s such a huge decision and it’s just incredible what you have to go through to become a woman,” Conchita tells us.

“But me as a drag artist, this is just dressing up and painting.” We also touched on the subject of Aram Mp3’s controversial—and potentially misinterpreted—comments on LGBT people.

“This is exactly why I’m doing what I do,” Conchita says.

“He said some very awful things and I really need to talk to him about that.” And they the Aram Mp3-Conchita Wurst Peace Accords and all is still well. Watch our interview with Conchita in London and in Copenhagen.

Conchita has not regressed or forgotten the power of his apology (even if the audience in Amsterdam has).

Germany has become the first European country to pass a law that lets a birth certificate to be left blank in cases where the child is neither obviously male nor female, but it will take far more than a bureaucratic fix to remove the stigma of "abnormalit A new law, which came into force today in Germany, provides that the box on a birth certificate specifying a child's gender should be left blank in cases where the child is neither obviously male nor female.

This summer, the EU stipulated for the first time that intersex people should be included in anti-discrimination law, while earlier in the year the UN Special Rapporteur on torture called for a ban on "forced genital-normalising surgery".

Yet intersex people remain excluded from our own Equality Act, and when the German proposals were first brought forward there was criticism from some that they would create a legally-defined "third sex".

In the event, the new law has left some intersex campaigners unsatisfied.
