Two gay policemen were married in Jerez de la Frontera, Spain on September 5 while dressed in their full police uniforms, in what many believe is a world first.

In an interview with a Spanish radio station, the couple, who are being referred to as Chema and Jonathan by Spanish media, said they have lots of gay friends and allies in the police force.

“If it helps someone who is being bullied in school for their sexual orientation to see it as something normal, then that’s great,” Chema said. “It’s not something that should be hidden just because you belong to a particular institution.”

The couple was married at the Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art and plan on road tripping from Seattle to San Diego for their honeymoon.
