Cynthia Nixon Clarifies Controversal Statement About Her Sexual Orientation

“Sex and the City” Star Cynthia Nixon has played some serious damage control today after a statement she made to The New York Times last week where she stated that her homosexuality was a choice.  After the resulting backlash from the LGBT community, Nixon issued a statement today through LGBT magazine “The Advocate” clarifying her comments,

“My recent comments in The New York Times were about me and my personal story of being gay.  I believe we all have different ways we came to the gay community and we can’t and shouldn’t be pigeon-holed into one cultural narrative which can be uninclusive and disempowering. However, to the extent that anyone wishes to interpret my words in a strictly legal context I would like to clarify:

“While I don’t often use the word, the technically precise term for my orientation is bisexual. I believe bisexuality is not a choice, it is a fact. What I have ‘chosen’ is to be in a gay relationship.

“As I said in the Times and will say again here, I do, however, believe that most members of our community—as well as the majority of heterosexuals—cannot and do not choose the gender of the persons with whom they seek to have intimate relationships because, unlike me, they are only attracted to one sex.

“Our community is not a monolith, thank goodness, any more than America itself is. I look forward to and will continue to work toward the day when America recognizes all of us as full and equal citizens.”

Nixon has been in a relationship with her fiance Christine Marinoni for almost 8 years.  Before Marinoni, Nixon was in a long-term relationship with English professor Danny Mozes, with whom she has two children.
