Two gay policemen have married in Jerez de la Frontera in Spain, in what is believed to be a world first.
The couple, referred to in Spanish media as Chema and Jonathan, married in full police uniform, with photos of the happy couple making it on to social media.
Gay marriage has been legal in Spain since 2005.
Chema told Spanish radio station Canal Sur that he and his husband have plenty of gay friends in the police force, adding: ‘If it helps someone who is being bullied in school for their sexual orientation to see it as something normal, then that’s great.’
He added: ‘It’s not something that should be hidden just because you belong to a particular institution.’
The couple married at the Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art and will be traveling across the US from Seattle to San Diego for their honeymoon, according to thelocal.es.
