The Prime Minister of Luxembourg traveled to Orlando, Florida, to pay his respects to the 49 people killed when a gunman opened fire at an Orlando gay nightclub.

Orlando’s Mayor Buddy Dyer took PM Xavier Bettel and his husband to the site of the Pulse nightclub, where mourners have created a semi-permanent tribute to the victims of the attack.

“The world still stands with Orlando. Luxembourg Prime Minister Xavier Bettel visited today to offer condolences,” the Mayor tweeted.

Luxembourg is the first country to have a gay Prime Minister and gay Deputy Prime Minister at the same time, and

When same-sex marriage became legal last year, Bettel and his long-time partner, Gauthier Destenay, were among the first to tie the knot.
