Barbados last week elected its first female prime minister, who is also pro-LGBT, in a landslide victory. Mia Mottley will lead the Caribbean island country, and her party, the Barbados Labour Party, took all of the seats in parliament. It's the first time the party has been in power in a decade. Barbados-born pop star Rihanna possibly gave Mottley a boost at the polls, setting Instagram on fire when she responded to her friend Leandra Goodridge's post claiming Mottley would be the next prime minister.
