Klaus Wowereit is the mayor of Berlin. As far as I know he was the first "officially gay" mayor of Germany - and he definitely fits perfectly to Berlin because he is cool! (Well, I don't know many mayors with a fancy Flash Website that is available also in Turkish! ;)
He came out as gay with the sentence 'Ich bin schwul - und das ist auch gut so' (I am gay and that is good so) before he was elected and it became a rather popular statement.
