All You Need To Know About Mike Bonin And Sean Arian’s Relationship
Bonin and Arian met at City Hall in 2009. At the time, Arian worked for Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa as his Director of Economic Development. At the time, Bonin was Bill Rosendahl’s chief of staff and a Courage Campaign activist for same-sex marriage.
They got married at Point Fermin Park in a ceremony led by Mayor Eric Garcetti.
The happy wedding was held in the neighborhood where Arian grew up. Several bands from Venice, which Bonin represents, played art and music at the event. The couple wanted their wedding to be green and high-tech. Instead of paper invitations, they used a wedding app, and the sound system was run by solar power. With a giant Jenga set, interactive art, and bouncy houses for both kids and adults, the reception felt like a carnival.
On July 21, the couple celebrated their wedding anniversary. Mike posted a photo of the two of them on Instagram and captioned it, “Celebrating our 8th wedding anniversary this week!!! So blessed to have fallen in love, married, and built a life with a guy who’s my superhero. @seanarian2“
Nury Martinez Exposed For Racist Comments About Mike Bonin’s Son
A recording of some Democrats on the Los Angeles City Council making racist comments about a colleague’s black child got out, a report said Sunday. The Los Angeles Times reported that the recording showed Council President Nury Martinez calling her colleague Mike Bonin’s black son “ese changito,” which means “that little monkey” in Spanish. The Post has not looked at the recording.
Martinez, who is Latina, also said that Bonin, who is white, was raising his baby “like a little white kid.”
“I thought, This kid needs to be beaten up. “Let me take him around the corner, and I’ll bring him back,” said the head of the city council. The report says that she also called the child “su negrito,” which is a derogatory term for a black person in Spanish.
During the conversation, which lasted about an hour, she called Bonin, who is also a Democrat, “that little bitch,” according to the Times.
Mike Bonin posted a statement on his Instagram regarding this ugly news against Nury Martinez, Kevin de Leon, Gil Cedillo, and Ron Herrera. Both Mike and Sean are angry and disappointed by this and asked the city council to remove Nury as Council President immediately.
