In a recent interview, Cynthia Nixon opened up about being a parent to a trans child and the evolution of LGBT+ rights.
“Before I ever had an inkling my kid might be trans I read a really extensive article… [about] all of these parents of pre-pubescent kids who were really struggling with this.
“There was one dad who said “At a certain point, the decision seemed to me I could have a dead son or a live daughter” and it’s like, after you say that, what more is there to say?
“You can make all the arguments that you want… but the fact is, as a parent, as a human, you should listen to what people tell you about themselves.
“And if they want to make this really extreme change or move in that direction, people are not going to do this lightly,” she explained in the interview.
Touching on sexuality, the ‘Sex and the City’ star, who identifies as bisexual and is married to Christine Marinoni and a strong advocate for LGBTQ rights, Cynthia said: “It’s different but it’s the same as when you think about 30/40 years ago and more, the arguments given to gay people that “This is just a phase,” “You’re gonna grow out of this.”
As the ‘Daily Mail’ reports, back in 2018, Nixon praised her son Samuel as they celebrated the 14th Annual Trans Day of Action. Posting a photo on her social media she wrote: “I'm so proud of my son Samuel Joseph Moses (called Seph) who graduated college this month. I salute him and everyone else marking today’s #TransDayofAction. #TDOA.”
