Claudia López, who will be sworn into office in January, announced her wedding to Angélica Lozano on social media, sharing an enthusiastic message and several photographs.
“On my way to the happiest moment of my life!” the mayor-elect wrote on Twitter. She thanked her bride for “loving me always” and promised “to honor and love” her the rest of their lives, and posted photographs show the white-clad couple holding a bouquet.
Claudia is also the first openly lesbian mayor of Bogota, or of any capital city in Latin America, where traditional cultural biases, coupled with conservative religious values, often slow the cause of advancing LGBT acceptance. In Colombia, same-sex marriage has been legal since 2016.
Congrats to the newlyweds!!!
