Iceland Passes Gay Marriage Law In Unanimous Vote

"Iceland, the only country in the world to have an openly gay head of state, passed a law on Friday allowing same-sex partners to get married in a vote which met with no political resistance," reports Reuters. "Iceland, a socially tolerant island nation of about 320,000 people, became the first country to elect an openly gay head of state in 2009 when Social Democrat Johanna Sigurdardottir became prime minister after being nominated by her party. The prime minister's sexual orientation garnered far more interest among foreign media than in Iceland."
