The Long Beach Post sat down with Mayor Robert Garcia and Dr. Matthew Mendez on Monday at The Breakfast Bar in downtown Long Beach to talk about their recent engagement, their relationship over the years, what it’s like being role models for the LGBTQ community and plans for the future.

While the couple doesn’t usually discuss their private life, they opened up about how they balance their relationship and demanding careers, how many kids they’ll want and what their best and worst habits are.
