Iceland’s PM: Gay Woman

The biggest story this week is that Iceland’s new PM is a gay woman!

From the Star Tribune:
“Iceland’s next leader will be an openly gay former flight attendant who parlayed her experience as a union organizer into a decades-long political career. Both parties forming Iceland’s new coalition government support the appointment of Johanna Sigurdardottir, the island nation’s 66-year-old social affairs minister, as Iceland’s interim prime minister.”
