Iceland Prime Minister Johanna Sigurdardottir Welcomes Legalization of Gay Marriage by Marrying Her Partner
"Iceland's parliament on June 12 unanimously adopted legislation allowing gay marriage, in a law that came into force on Sunday. Homosexual couples could previously enter into a civil partnership and benefit from the same rights as heterosexual couples, but this had not been considered a formal marriage. Miss Sigurdardottir, born in 1942, took power in February 2009. She has lived with Miss Ledsdottir, who is in her fifties, for several years and the couple entered a civil union in 2002. She is the world's first openly gay head of government."
Talk about leading by example.
Parliament's vote on June 11 to legalize same-sex marriage was unanimous — 49-0.
