From Foreign Policy's global gay-pride slideshow:

"In February, Johanna Sigurdardottir, who has been in a civil union with her female partner since 2002, became the first openly gay leader of a country when she became prime minister of Iceland. In socially liberal Iceland, most people aren't concerned with their leader's sexual orientation. Iceland has allowed civil unions since 1996, and most countries that allow same-sex marriage or civil unions are in Europe. Above, Sigurdardottir gets powdered before a live TV debate on April 24."
