It seems Austria's Eurovision winner, bearded drag queen Conchita Wurst, has started a trend - with a Vienna academy that teaches women how to walk in high heels now opening its doors to men who were eager to join the workshops.

Organisers at the Top in Heels Academy in the 18th district claim that more men have started experimenting with high heels since cross dressing star Conchita won the Eurovision Song Contest last year.

Originally, they launched classes to help women learn how to walk elegantly in stilettos but have now launched a Men In Heels workshop - which focusses on technique, elegance and injury prevention.

The workshops are taught by dancer Marie-Christin Scherzer, who studied ballet and contemporary dance, and drag queen Helmut Fixl.

A 90 minute session costs €45, with the next workshop taking place on October 30th.
