The first woman to be elected mayor of Colombia’s capital city has married her partner in a private civil ceremony before taking office. Claudia López announced her wedding to Angélica Lozano late on Monday by sharing an enthusiastic message and several photographs on social media. “On my way to the happiest moment of my life!” López wrote on Twitter. The incoming mayor of Bogotá, who takes office in January, thanked her bride for “loving me always” and promised “to honor and love” her the rest of their days. Photographs show the pair dressed in white, holding a simple bouquet of flowers and smiling. The couple’s union has become a rallying cause among supporters promoting LGBT rights in the traditionally conservative, Catholic country – though Colombia has permitted gay marriage since a landmark constitutional court ruling in 2016.
