The GOP is still whining about not being able to stay in the past. I am proud of this action and saw it as one of my major executive orders. A lot of credit goes to the gay community in Albuquerque back then. Especially my communications officer at the time, Brian Morris.
Later that year I served as the first Mayor to ever ride, as grand marshall, in the gay pride parade in Albuquerque.
