Picture of the day: A historical document worth remembering

A mysterious figure in suit appeared on the First Ladies group's picture taken after the NATO meeting ended in Brussels earlier the week. But who is this character? He is none other than Gauthier Destenay, the spouse of the openly homosexual prime minister of Luxembourg who was also invited to the photo session.

In Luxembourg, homosexual couples can marry legally since 2015. His official title is "The First Gentleman of Luxembourg." Confusing times!

In the first press release, the White House didn’t mention the spouse of the prime minister of Luxembourg when describing the photo, which caused an outrage among the gay community world wide; later the omission was corrected.
