Spain’s new PM appoints two gay ministers to cabinet

Cabinet now has more women and gay men than heterosexual men

Spain’s newly installed government has appointed two openly gay men as cabinet ministers.

It’s the first time the country has had such a large LGBT representation in the government’s cabinet office.

Mariano Rajoy, the previous prime minister, stepped down last week. He left following a vote of no confidence. He was replaced by Pedro Sanchez, who put together a new cabinet team.
