Iceland likely to have lesbian Prime Minister

Jóhanna Siguðardóttir is likely to become Prime Minister of Iceland, heading up a left wing minority government.  Iceland’s governing coalition collapsed on Monday.  While Iceland isn’t usually paid much heed as it is a rather small country, this would be the first time that any country has had an openly gay prime minister.

Also, take into consideration that her last name, Siguðardóttir means “daughter of Siguðar”.  As a side note, if you are weirded out by some of the strange letters in the Icelandic alphabet, take into account that Icelanders have had to good sense to differentiate between the sound of the th in the (Ð majiscule and ð miniscule) and the th in death (Þ majiscule þ miniscule).
