LUXEMBOURG – OPENLY GAY PM TIES THE KNOT


Congratulations are in order for Luxembourg’s openly gay Prime Minister Xavier Bettel who this month wed his long term partner Gauthier Destenay. The country’s same-sex marriage laws only only came into effect in January and the first couple wasted no time in announcing their wedding plans. The couple wed in a very private ceremony with no media allowed but it is understood that a number of prominent European political figures attended the ceremony. Luxembourg’s deputy Prime Minister Etienne Schneider is also openly gay.
