One of Holland’s first same-sex marriages in 2000.

 

On April 1st, 2000 four-same sex couples officially became the first legally-recognised gay married couples in the world following a law passed in the Netherlands.

In a predecessor to last weekend’s first UK same-sex marriages, four couples were married by the Mayor of Amsterdam. Despite two same-sex couples being married in Ontario, Canada in January, 2000 Canada didn’t officially ratify the marriages until 2003.
