Just Married Outside Madrid


Here they are folks — Spain’s first gay married couple, Carlos Baturin a psychiatrist (who is the spitting image of Edward James Olmos!), and a store window decorator, Emilio Menendez. The two have been a couple for 30 years and were married in the Madrid suburb of Tres Cantos. Said Menendez: “We’re normal people who love each other and want to be happy.” Congratulations to the couple and to a nation that has chosen to dignify all of its citizens with the rights that come with marriage.

Great photo of a handsome couple!
