Cynthia Nixon ended her 15-year relationship with Danny Mozes, the father of their two children, in 2004. The actress began dating community organizer Christine Marinoni shortly thereafter and their romance has progressed smoothly.
※A very happy Cynthia Nixon with her girlfriend, Christine Marinoni.
When her romance first came to light, Cynthia openly acknowledged it but still refused to comment much: "My private life is private, but at the same time, I have nothing to hide. So what I will say is that I am very happy."
However, she has just recently begun to discuss her private life more openly and has even granted interviews to several gay magazines. In the May issue of England's top-selling lesbian culture magazine, “DIVA”, she talks endearingly about Marinoni: ”She understands me better than any other man, and considers everything we do is related to our partnership. We eat together, go shopping together, cook together and raise our kids together. I love her because she is who she is."
In her words, Nixon reveals a solid connection with her partner and a depth in their relationship greater than ever before. In recent months, not only has Nixon spoken more frankly about her coming out, but she has also become socially active as a lesbian.
For example, she was there at the 2007 Gay Pride parade in New York enjoying and supporting the event with her partner. (The woman sitting on the sidewalk with the cap on is Nixon - next to her is Marinoni.)
Only a few months back, Nixon publicly shared for the first time the fact that she was engaged in a secret battle with breast cancer in 2006. Now a bold breast cancer survivor, Nixon has since been appointed ambassador for the Susan G. Komen Foundation for the prevention of the breast cancer. Her role in the campaign allows her to speak to all women, but also specifically address lesbians with her important message as well.
Gay women face unique issues when it comes to breast cancer. Since we're not always as focused on birth control and reproductive issues, we tend to often visit the gynecologist's office less often than straight women do. Many times missing those visits means missing the opportunity to have important early detection tests like clinical breast exams and mammograms - which means breast cancer may not be detected at its earliest, most treatable stages. Knowing this we have an even greater responsibility. Learn the facts and take control of your breast health. Visit Komen.org.
TW emphatically applauds Nixon for being such a rock solid advocate,
and continuing to be her own outstanding self!
