Gay Hairstylist Refuses to “Wash and Set” NM Gov. Susana Martinez
Matt | On 22, Feb 2012
Here’s a good example of someone standing up for what they believe in.
A gay hairstylist in Santa Fe, New Mexico has gone public with his story of recently refusing to take an appointment for the state’s Gov. Susana Martinez, a Republican.
Antonio Darden, who runs Antonio’s Hair Studio in Santa Fe, says that he will not cut Martinez’s hair as long as she opposes same-sex marriage.
Darden has cut the governor’s hair three times before. Recently, her staff called to book another appointment. They were kindly refused twice based on the position she holds. It looks like he feels strongly about it and decide to protest one of his highest-profile clients.
So, Gov. Martinez is going to have to get her wig washed elsewhere. I hope her next stylist can wean her away from this “Nancy Grace-like” look she has going on. ::side-eye::

Do you think Mr. Darden has taken his stance toward Gov. Martinez and her views too far?
