Iceland To Appoint First Lesbian Prime Minister

Jim Burroway

January 28th, 2009

Iceland is set to appoint  as the world’s first openly gay woman to serve as prime minister. Jóhanna is currently the island nation’s social affairs minster. She was picked by the Social Democratic Alliance Party to lead an interim minority government after the conservative-led government fell on Monday. She will serve as prime minister until elections are held in early May.

Jóhanna is stepping into a plum job. The country’s banks have all collapsed, the Krona has plummeted, and inflation and unemployment are shooting through the roof. Which kind of remind me of the November 5th Onion headline, “Black Man Given Nation’s Worst Job.” A lesbian still can’t get a break.
