The internet is applauding a photo of an international assortment of first ladies taken during this week's NATO activities for containing—gasp—a man. People reports that's Gauthier Destenay, husband of Luxembourg's Prime Minister Xavier Bettel, posing along with Melania Trump and the first ladies of France, Turkey, Iceland, and more. The International Business Times shares a typical Twitter reaction to the photo: "I love this so much omg." Destenay, an architect, married Bettel in 2015 after Luxembourg legalized gay marriage. Bettel is Luxembourg's first openly gay prime minister and currently the only openly gay head of government in the world. (More Luxembourg stories.)
