White House Excludes Luxembourg’s First Gentleman

He may appear in the photo taken of Melania Trump and other First Ladies of NATO countries, but the First Gentleman of Luxembourg, Gauthier Destenay’s name was notably left out of the caption released by the White House after a State Visit to various countries last month. Just because that European country isn’t ashamed of their leader doesn’t give us the right to exclude him.

The White House is facing backlash after they omitted the first openly gay Prime Minister’s husband from a photo caption.

Gauthier Destenay, who married Luxembourg PM Xavier Bettel in 2015, was photographed along with the wives of the other leaders at the Nato summit in Brussels last week.
