Finnish PM comes from a same-sex family


The youngest country leader in the world reveals to be a daughter of same-sex parents. Sanna Marin will replace Antti Rinne who resigned last week, making the country’s five-party coalition entirely led by women. Four out of five are in their thirties. Marin is currently Finland’s transport minister but was elected as the country’s leader on December 8. She is also the first female Finnish PM. She was the first in her family to go to university, and was raised in a rainbow family, as she called it, having two moms. Marin told the Finnish site Menaiset in 2015 that she felt her upbringing in a LGBT+ household formed her political views and beliefs.” “For me, people have always been equal. It’s not a matter of opinion. That’s the foundation of everything. But growing up those around her did not always feel the same way, and she said that growing up with same-sex parents made her feel “invisible” and that they “were not recognized as a true family or equal with others”.
