For a long time, Marius Bear from Switzerland struggled to find his message to the world. “I am a white privileged boy from Switzerland, there is nothing to complain about.” In the end, however, he found his message in his emotional character.
Marius spoke about the meaning of his song at his Eurovision 2022 press conference. “Boys Do Cry, it’s a statement for myself. I realized I am a really emotional guy, and I am proud to show that.”
He hopes that his statement will help others as well. “If more man feel comfortable to show their emotions and be themselves, this will take away the sea in which toxic masculinity grows.”

Marius’ stage director Sacha Jean-Baptiste also spoke about the dance moves Marius Bear makes in his performance.
“The song is like a lullaby, it’s delicate. We wanted to stay true to the song and to Marius. The dance moves came fully from Marius, we just exaggerated a bit.”
