When it feels like the world is spiraling into chaos, a bit of good news can be refreshing and reassuring. But this bit of news isn’t just heartwarming, it’s history making!
Luxembourg’s Prime Minister has become the first EU leader to marry a same-sex partner.
Luxembourg’s Prime Minister Xavier Bettel married his partner Gauthier Destenay on Friday, becoming the first European Union leader to enter a gay marriage.
Teri Schultz tells our Newscast unit that Bettel becomes the second world leader to do so. Iceland’s Prime Minister Johanna Sigurdardottir married her partner five years ago.
The interesting part about this development is that gay marriage is a relatively new thing in Luxembourg. As The Guardian reports, Bettel’s party won a prominent spot in the ruling coalition after campaigning for same-sex marriage.
