Bill Richardson’s Got Pride

Live in Iowa? Gay? Like Democratic Presidential Candidate and New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson? Well, you’re in luck, because the 59-year old politico will be appearing at Grand Rapid’s Cedar Rapid’s Pride Fest this weekend!

Richardson – the first Latino presidential candidate – has a history of supporting the homos: he pushed for a restricted domestic partnership bill in New Mexico. Unfortunately, the bill failed to garner enough votes for passage.

No doubt that political push – and this weekend’s dragalicious photo ops – will provide his enemies will plenty of fuel for their fire. Hopefully it will also show gays that at least one of the Democrats cares enough about the purple people to march.
