Iceland’s P.M. marries

Prime Minister Johanna Sigurdardottir

Johanna Sigurdardottir became famous last year as the first openly gay person to be the political head of a nation when she ascended to the role of prime minister of Iceland. And now she claims another milestone: One of the first people to marry a same-sex partner under Iceland’s newly passed marriage law.

Sigurdardottir married her partner, writer Jonina Leosdottir, in a ceremony Sunday, the Associated Press reports. The law was passed June 11.

So, that means the U.S. trails behind countries like Spain and Iceland, and cities like Mexico D.F., in human rights. Way to go!
