It is said that behind every great woman is a great gay man--or something like that. Whether it is Condoleeza Rice spending thousands at Ferragamo on Fifth Avenue or Michelle Obama decked out in Jason Wu, it's no secret that many of our country's most powerful female leaders enjoy getting dressed everyday and at much credit to gays in the fashion industry.
There is a definite power share between the two worlds which one hairdresser in Santa Fe, New Mexico decided to take into his own hands. NY Mag reports, Antonio Darden a "popular stylist" in Santa Fe, has cut the hair of Republican governor Susana Martinez three times before, but recently decided to end his services because of her stance on marriage equality.
Darden states, "The governor's aides called not too long ago, wanting another appointment to come in," Darden said. "Because of her stances and her views on [gay marriage] 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."
Looks like Susana is S.O.L.
