Snapshots from Weekly Alibi’s PRIDE Photobooth

On Saturday, July 11, a team of Alibi staffers joined forces to host a photobooth and raffle at Albuquerque PRIDE! We were able to raise over $150 for the Transgender Resource Center of New Mexico thanks to the generous donations of festival-goers, many of whom are featured in these pictures. It was a day full of rainbows, glitter, giant man-sized butterflies and the shared purpose of supporting everyone to be exactly who they are. Many thanks to everyone who stopped by. See you next year!

Tying the Gordian Knot: Marriage equality amplifies affinity spectrum

I'm a relative newcomer to the world of marriage, but I already know a little: It's not a contract to be entered into lightly. The person you marry should be your must trusted confidant, your best friend, your most ardent fan and (sometimes) your harshest critic. But when it works, it's really lovely. And even when it doesn't work quite as well—especially in comparison to the reality-challenged world of the rom-com—it's still pretty great.

When I got married (to the absolute love of my life) in 2012, same-sex marriages weren't legally recognized by the state of New Mexico. As excited as I was to get married—and perhaps more importantly, to be married—it really harshed my nuptial buzz to know that so many of my friends were not allowed access to that right. Thankfully the realm of marriage equality in New Mexico has been reformed to respect the rights of all couples that populate this enchanted, difficult landscape.

In celebration of love and equality, Weekly Alibi is calling for essays (of less than 750 words) on the meaning of marriage equality and surviving the before-time ... when the marital rights of all citizens were not deemed equal. Email essays to letters@alibi.com, including "Pride 2014" in the subject line. We really want to hear your story. Some will be sad and some joyous, and we want to hear them all. Why? Because your stories—the trajectories of your lives—in the here and now are history-in-the-making. All our stories and all our loves were always equal ... The New Mexican political/legal system just had to come to its senses and recognize that.

If your choose to share your story—and we sincerely hope you will—we'll invite some of you to join us on our Chapel of Love-themed Pride 2014 float; we'll be near the front of the parade, right behind Equality New Mexico's company of already-married husbands, and wives. After the parade, we offer to usher you in to a group ceremony on Main Stage ... or not. Our choices about how and whether to get married have a lot of cultural, traditional and religious significance and implications. And we respect that. But there's no rule that you can't get married to the same person more than once. The personal is political, and we will be honored to bear witness to all those who wish to be united. In coordination with Albuquerque Pride, we've arranged for Metropolitan Community Church Pastor Rev. Judith L. Maynard to officiate the ceremony.

So write us at letters@alibi.com. And to everyone else, we'll see y'all at Pride. We'll be the ones waiting down by the chapel ... dressed in white.

This is Chris Wright, an attendee at this year's ABQ Pride Fest. To quote my mother, Chris seemed both pretty on the outside & on the inside. His fierce outfit attracted a lot of attention, including the admiration of two small girls. I watched as the young ladies (who were also dressed in their Pride finest) earned smiles & high-fives from this young man. To me, he was everything that Pride should be - vibrant, unique, kind, and inclusive. That's why I titled his photo "Chris Wright is Beautiful."

Party!

Taos Pride is this weekend

I just spent a lovely weekend in Taos for a wedding. As the sun sets there, the evening air grows chilly—as opposed to slightly less boiling hot, like in Burque.

Last year, Taos celebrated its first ever Pride weekend, though its founder died a few weeks before the event. The fest was held in Robert Quintana’s honor. Friends described him as an energetic organizer who pulled people together and created community. He loved a good soiree, they said. There was a touch of seriousness to the first Taos Pride, but volunteers still predicted “a screaming big party.”

And they’re at it again. Taos Pride will paint the town in rainbows this weekend on Aug. 19, 20 and 21. Festivities include a cabaret, a drag show, music and a recovery brunch, among other fabulous things.
