Ten days after first Gay marriage,

by Frank Rovers in History & Politics , 10 april 2001

Ten days after Major Cohen from Amsterdam married 4 gay couples the world reacts either shocked and in disbelieve or positive and with perspective to open gay marriage in their countries.

While in the US a concert from the Dutch “Concertgebouworkest” was interrupted by people who were demonstrating against gays. While holding banners saying AIDS was a punishment from god, do you see the comparison between concerts and gay? Germany was more open to the subject. As it is the Major from Berlin, Klaus Boger sees himself in the same spot where Major Cohen was in when he married 4 couples. The media attention was enormous and Cohen could be seen in several countries. Major Boger thinks that bringing the subject gay marriage to the public has a positive effect on discrimination towards gays and everybody who is against this is handling against the law which states that nobody is allowed to discriminate. Not everybody who is involved with gay marriage in the Netherlands is happy with marrying couples from the same sex. A couple of European countries as well as the Dutch Antilles and Aruba will not be accepting couples from the same sex. This can have consequences while emigrating to one of those countries.
