Iceland’s Lesbian Prime Minister Gets Official Vote

icelandpm2She was appointed Iceland’s interim Prime Minister back in February, and now Johanna Sigurdardottir has become the world’s first elected openly out lesbian leader.

Sigurdardottir, 66, is nicknamed ‘Saint Johanna’ for her relentless defence of social causes. She married her long-time partner Jonina Ledsdottir, 54, in 2002.

Sigurdardottir and her center-left government are dealing with Iceland’s major financial crisis, which led the previous PM’s resignation. She plans to lead her country into the European Union and adopt the Euro currency.
