Marvel has released the cover of Astonishing X-men #51 in which their first openly-gay character, Northstar, weds longtime boyfriend Kyle. That's nice and all, but I'm more concerned that it looks like Iceman and Storm are totally late to the ceremony! Look guys, just because you're mutants doesn't mean you can just waltz, slide, or fly in whenever you feel like it!

Although gay marriage has no official status in Japan, this week Tokyo Disneyland announced it would begin allowing same-sex couples to wed on their property. This decision came after 27-year-old Koyuki Higashi inquired if it would be permitted for her to marry her partner there. This announcement is considered groundbreaking in a country where homosexuality is still a taboo topic. Via The Guardian:

Higashi and her partner have visited Disneyland to break their good news to Mickey Mouse, but have yet to set a date for the wedding. "Mickey first looked surprised to hear that we are a couple of girls," she said on her blog. "But we said we were there to thank him … and he celebrated with us."

Disney really does make dreams come true!
