Cynthia Nixon reveals her oldest son is transgender in an Instagram post
Cynthia Nixon took to Instagram to share an adorable picture of her and her son Samuel Joseph Mozes on Trans Day of Action.
Cynthia Nixon is a proud mama! The actress revealed that her son, Samuel is a transgender in a sweet Instagram photo. The picture showed Cynthia beaming with happiness as she stood next to her son on the day of his graduation. She captioned the picture, "I’m so proud of my son Samuel Joseph Mozes (called Seph) who graduated college this month. I salute him and everyone else marking today’s #TransDayofAction. #TDOA."
Cynthia shares Samuel, who was born Samantha Mozes, with ex Danny Mozes. The pair is also proud parents to 5-year-old son Charles Ezekiel Mozes. At the same time, Cynthia is a mom to 7-year-old Max Ellington Nixon-Marinoni with her wife, Christine Marinoni. Even though one might say Cynthia has her hands full after she confirmed she will be running for governor of New York against Andrew Cuomo, she always has time for her kids.
The actress has always been an advocate of LGBTQ rights and has talked about the issue on various platforms. She wrote an op-ed in Variety back in 2015 where she brought the attention to the right of the community and the importance of marriage equality. “We have to keep organizing like our lives depend on it," she wrote. She also addressed how many critics called 'Sex and the city' a "groundbreaking writing".
“When a TV show is 'ground-breaking,' it doesn’t really create something new: It reflects something already happening in the population, but the culture hasn’t caught up with it," she said. "Similarly, LGBT characters aren’t new; everybody has LGBT people in their family. And everybody needs to make the effort to come out in any and every way they can."
Cynthia brought attention to the fact that every individual can enjoy the right that they deserve if everyone comes together in support. “If people who are opposed to equality realized how many individuals they already like, admire or even love are LGBT, the battle would be over. It’s important to come out to our parents, children, co-workers, boss — you name it," she said.
Meanwhile, in March, when the actress announced she would be running for governor she made it clear that she intends a change to take place in the way the government is run.
"We want our government to work again. On health care, ending massive incarceration, fixing our broken subway," she said in a video announcing her candidacy.
"We are sick of politicians who care more about headlines and power than they do about us." There have been several other issues that the actress has been vocal about. These include repairing New York City’s subway system, as well as abolishing ICE. Recently, she called ICE a “terrorist organization” and referred to President Donald Trump “its egomaniacal leader.”
