We had a productive day in Santa Fe today. We conducted a great interview with a young queer New Mexico native, who shared with us a bit about the queer community in Santa Fe. She also told us about her activism, working to pass a domestic partnership bill in New Mexico. The bill is still in the works. New Mexico does have laws protecting LGBT people from workplace discrimination though. This is the first state that we have visited that protects people from discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.
I like New Mexico. This is a beautiful state. After our interview in Santa Fe, we headed toward Taos, New Mexico. Taos is a super cute little town located in the shadow of a huge mountain. We met some great folks in town and saw some beautiful sights; including the incredible Rio Grande Gorge Bridge.
