When New Mexico governor Susana Martinez had her people called hair stylist Antonio Darden and book her another appointment (whether to touch up her roots or file down her horns, we’re not sure), he said enough is enough. Tired of Martinez’s position against marriage equality, Darden told the guv’s lackey Martinez could go to SuperCuts or get a Flowbee, ‘cause he was done chopping the locks of a bigot.
“Because of her stances and her views on this I told her aides no. They called the next day, asking if I’d changed my mind about taking the governor in and I said no again.”
Openly gay, Darden runs Antonio’s Salon in Santa Fe and has been with his partner for 15 years. “I think it’s just equality, dignity for everyone,” he says. “I think everybody should be allowed the right to be together.”
Firstly, all you Santa Fe gays need to get yourself on Mr. Antonio’s waiting list. Because this bitch just passed on one of the most lucrative gigs a stylist can get to take a political stance. (We don’t even recycle.)
And secondly, when are we gonna have that National Day Without Gay People everyone keeps threatening to hold? Let’s see them brides, flower shops, Starbucks and Republican congressmen keep things going without us!
