New York governor candidate Cynthia Nixon self-identifies as ‘queer,’ not as a lesbian, spokeswoman says

Cynthia Nixon has been frequently referenced in the press as trying to become New York’s first lesbian governor — but the actress-turned-politician does not actually self-identify as a lesbian, instead considering herself as queer, according to campaign spokeswoman Lauren Hitt.

Speaking to the New York Daily News, Hitt noted that the frequent descriptions of Nixon as a lesbian were incorrect, but declined to discuss further why Nixon identifies as a queer rather than as a lesbian or as bisexual.

“It’s personal,” Hitt said of the choice.

Nixon, who rose to fame on HBO’s “Sex and the City,” and who is now challenging incumbent Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo ahead of the Sept. 13 Democratic primary, is married to LGBTQ advocate and political strategist Christine Marinoni. The couple has one child and Nixon also has two children with her ex-husband, Danny Mozes.
