Cynthia Nixon holds the reputation of being an advocate for LGBT rights in USA. She has been very vocal about the rights of her fellow LGBT brethren since Donald Trump got elected as the president of the country.
Cynthia Nixon is married to wife Christine Marinoni. Recently, she was spotted advocating for gays and lesbians’ rights during a solidarity rally. The rally was held to protest against the President’s immigration ban.
Cynthia Nixon Explosive Speech At Anti-Trump Rally
Cynthia Nixon took the stage to deliver a passionately scathing speech against Donald Trump’s recent decisions. She even questioned the election of Mike Pence as the Vice President of the country. She says, “He poses (Trump) as our ally … but he chooses Mike Pence, the poster boy for anti-LGBT rhetoric, legislation and conversion therapy, as his vice president.”
The Sex and the City star did not mince words before calling Trump a poser, someone who just pretends to support the LGBT group. She is rallying support for people to voice their concerns about the recent changes in legislation. Nixon says LGBT people need to come out because their “coming out has never been more important than it is right now.”
