Cynthia Nixon on Trans Son: 'I Salute Him'

Cynthia Nixon on Trans Son: 'I Salute Him'”

The former Sex and The City star, who has set her sights on a policial career and is now running for New York Governor, shared on social media that her son, Samuel Joseph Mozes, is a transgender man. I salute him and everyone else marking today's #TransDayofAction. Nixon's son was born Samantha Mozes and is the oldest of two children between Nixon and her ex-partner, Danny Mozes.

Cynthia, who is an advocate of LGBTQ rights, married her wife Christine back in 2012.

Trans Day of Action began in 2005, and is an annual rally and march held in late June in New York City.

In addition to participating in LGBTQ advocacy for more than 10 years, Nixon herself has publicly identified as bisexual and was honored with the Human Rights Campaign's Visibility Award in February 2018.

This statement is emblematic of a large portion of Nixon's campaign, which - other than the platform on improving New York City's notoriously oft-delayed subway system - has been focused on abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the federal law enforcement agency tasked with arresting and deporting immigrants. It is organized by the Audre Lorde Project, an organization for LGBTQ+ people of color. Miranda Hobbes would be proud.

No matter where you stand politically, it's always incredible to see a parent accepting and loving his or her children for exactly who they are. How about some more R29 goodness, right here?
