corine-mauch-electedRemember Corine Mauch? She of the Tim Curry hairstyle and wide grin in her electoral mailbox flyers.

Yesterday, she was elected to [the largely ceremonial post of ] Stadtpräsidentin, or mayor, of Zurich.

She is the first woman to be elected to the post, the first one who has played bass in two female rock bands, and the first openly homosexual one.

Le maire de Zurich est lesbienne… «Et alors?»“, writes the Tribune de Genève.

She deserves, then, another picture in this blog.
