New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez's hair stylist has cited her opposition to gay marriage in refusing to cut her hair.

According to KOB-TV in Albuquerque, Antonio Darden, the owner of Antonio's Studio in Santa Fe, abruptly decided Martinez was no longer welcome at his business.

Darden said he previously cut the governor's hair three times.

“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 this, I told her aides no. They called the next day, asking if I'd changed my mind about taking the governor and I said no again.”

“I think it's just equality, dignity for everyone,” said Darden, who is openly gay. “I think everybody should be allowed the right to be together. My partner and I have been together for 15 years.”

Martinez, a Republican, is not only opposed to giving gay and lesbian couples the right to marry, she has also said she would not sign legislation recognizing gay couples with a domestic partnership.

“I would not sign the domestic partnership bill,” Martinez said during her 2010 campaign. “It is unnecessary and ill-advised, as most of the rights can be attained through contracts and by power of attorney.”
