“I salute him and everyone else marking today’s #TransDayofAction.”
Sex and the City star Cynthia Nixon has announced that her oldest child has come out as transgender.
The American actress, who identifies as bisexual, praised her son in a heartfelt post on 22 June, which happened to be the 14th annual Trans Day of Action.
“I’m so proud of my son Samuel Joseph Mozes (called Seph) who graduated college this month,” she said. “I salute him and everyone else marking today’s #TransDayofAction. #TDOA.”
Nixon is currently running for Governor of New York as a Democrat, where she will compete against reigning Governor Andrew Cuomo, who has filled the position since 2011.
If elected, Nixon would make history by becoming the first woman and openly LGBTQ Governor of New York.
The election is set to take place in November.
Nixon is best known for her work in the entertainment industry – for which she has won a Grammy, two Tonys and two Emmys – and for her role as Miranda Hobbes in the iconic HBO series, Sex and the City.
The series also spawned two highly-successful motion pictures of the same name, earning a combined total of nearly 700 million at the worldwide box office.
