Equal rights are equal rights. And for the life of us, we can’t understand why people of all sexual and gender orientations aren’t allowed the same benefits, aren’t given access to the same opportunities, and don’t receive the same thundering applause for ccomplishing great things. It doesn’t compute. Journalists that we are, that lack of logic is an irritating grit to us. But we’re making pearls out of it.

There’s a yawning lack of coverage on gay and gender issues by New Mexico information outletsand our frustration compels us to bridge that gap ourselves.

As the most widely read alternative weekly in New Mexico, we’re loud and proud about the local LGBTQ community. We do it by unearthing and reporting stories that don't get told anywhere else. We see the Alibi as a megaphone held aloft to mouths that have been excluded in traditional media. It's our mission to make those voices heard.

We don’t just talk the talk about supporting New Mexico LGBTs, we walk itor rather, we build parade floats and glide down the street on them.

In honor of this week’s Pride events, here’s some colorful coverage from years past:
