Spain’s First Military Gay Wedding


This summer, two men named Alberto will marry each other in Spain. This would be no big news, except they are both privates in Spain’s Air Force and it will be the first wedding of its type since same-sex marriage was legalized in Spain last summer.

One of our favorite recent stories was about the two gay Mounties in Canada that will be married soon in Nova Scotia (we love them. Photo evidence here), and now it’s happening in Spain, where, according to one of the Albertos, “… there are superior officers who will make life difficult for me, and they are already doing so.”

The two men will not be wearing their military uniforms during the ceremony even though they are permitted to, so as not to “antagonize” the military, which is too bad because it would make for lovely wedding photos.
