DanOmatic saidHow about Denmark, didn't that country have openly gay elected officials
DanOmatic saidI lived for a while in Luxembourg in the mid-1980s. At the time, it was through-and-through Catholic, and rather conservative. It's really quite astounding when you think about it now: the prime minister and deputy prime minister are gay, and now there's gay marriage. The only other country I can think of where all levels of policy and government are so pro-gay is Iceland, which until recently had a lesbian prime minister.Both Portugal and Spain seem to be much more gay friendly and accepting.
I guess what I meant is that not only is there acceptance and equality, but so much so that the highest elected officials in Luxembourg and Iceland can be openly gay and partnered.
Ugh. All I'm saying is that THE HIGHEST ELECTED POSITIONS were/are held by openly gay people in Luxembourg and Iceland. That is pretty remarkable. Sure, there are elected officials in the US, Canada, Denmark, the Netherlands, ad infinitum who are gay. However, I think it may be some time before the US has a gay president or the UK has a gay prime minister.
