Salt Lake City Mayor weds her longtime partner


Salt Lake City Mayor Jackie Biskupski married her longtime partner Betty Iverson in a private ceremony.

Biskupski is the city’s first openly gay mayor. She was sworn in last December with Iverson by her side.

Sharing their happiness in a Facebook post, the Democratic politician said: "We have always been bonded by love, but now we are joined by law".

The private ceremony was performed by their friend Kate Kendell, who is the executive director of the National Center for Lesbian Rights. Kendall wrote on Facebook that she is so proud to officiate the wedding of her longtime friends.

Congrats to the newlyweds!
