No Shoes, No Same-Sex Marriage, No Service of the Day: New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez will have find a new place to get her hair did after her openly gay stylist refused to allow her back in his salon until she changes her stance on same-sex marriage.
“The governor’s aides called not too long ago, wanting another appointment to come in,” Antonio Darden, owner of a popular hair studio in Santa Fe, told KOB Eyewitness News. “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.”
Darden, who has been with his partner for 15 years, took issue with Gov. Martinez’s statement that marriage should be restricted to one man and one woman.
“I think it’s just equality, dignity for everyone,” said Darden. “I think everybody should be allowed the right to be together.”
