Not so gay

Here's The Age of Australia:

HE IS silver-haired, handsome and hugely popular. And Klaus Wowereit may well be on his way to becoming the world's first gay leader.

Wowi, as his supporters know him, has been voted in for a second term as the left-wing Mayor of Berlin. He is also being groomed by his Social Democratic Party as its nomination for the chancellorship at the next general election in less than four years.

"First gay leader": Malcolm is wondering how they excluded William Rufus, Edward II, and James VI & I (and that's just the British cohort).

By the way, try googling "homosexual kings" and see how obsessed The Age is about the topic. Sphere: Related Content
