Greece Getting Gay Wedding

a_gay_wedding-11.jpg
Forget Lesbos! Tilos Island is totally the gay place to be in Greece. Well, for one couple, at least:

The mayor of a tiny Aegean Sea island says he is willing to carry out the first civil wedding ceremony for a gay couple in Greece.

Tilos Island Mayor Tassos Alfieris says he would carry out the ceremony for two gay men who took the first official step toward marriage by posting a wedding notice in a Greek newspaper.

In March a lesbian organization discovered a loophole in a 26-year-old law that does not specify gender in civil wedding. The two men on Tilos would be the first pair to test it.

Don’t you just love envelope pushing homos?!
