On record, actress Cynthia Nixon has officially come out about her loving relationship with her partner, Christine Marinoni by saying, “She’s basically a short man with boobs”. Hmm. That really sounds like love, doesn’t it? Be sure to check out photos and videos below.

As a biography, not too much is known about Cynthia Nixon’s girlfriend. Her name is Christine Marinoni and she is an education activist. Nixon and Marinoni met back in 2001 while working for charity. The two became friends that eventually developed into love. The hope to marry one day if New York legalizes gay marriage. Cynthia was in a long-term relationship with English professor, Danny Mozes. Together, they have two children: Samantha Mozes (b. November 1996) and Charles Ezekiel Mozes (b. December 2002). Mozes and Nixon dated from 1988 to 2003. Following the break, Marinoni and Nixon have been living with one another since 2004.

According to reports, the Sex and the City star’s former publicist apparently advised Cynthia to keep her sexuality and relationship with Christine confidential, for what some refer to as “the glass closet”. The couple’s reaction to the advice?

“That’s the whole thing? We never move past that? We’re at the playground with the kids, and pictures are taken of us, and we say, ‘No, she’s my friend?'”

Noway. So instead, the actress made the decision to break-through and allow her relationship to be known. About her sexual preference, she says, “If anybody, prior to my meeting and falling in love with Christine, had asked me about what I think about sexuality,” adding, “I would have said I think we’re all bisexual. But I had that point of view without ever having felt attracted to a woman. I had never met a woman I was attracted to [before Christine]. And maybe if I’d met her when I was 20, I would have fallen in love and only dated women. But maybe if I’d met her at 20, I wouldn’t have responded at all. Who knows?”

So what does she love about Christine Marinoni? Well, in a candid interview with Cynthia, she describes her girlfriend as “a short man with boobs”. In addition, she compliments her “butchness”. Nixon explains, “I love her sexuality — it’s a big part of what I love about her — but I feel like it was her. It wasn’t something in me that was waiting to come out. It was like, This person is undeniable. How can I let this person walk by?”

Undeniable or not, this is her life. And as long as there is sex in the city? Well, I’m okay with that. The couple got engaged during a rally in New York called “Action=Marriage Equality”. The two continue to fight for same-sex marriages and says:

“We’re hoping to do it in New York. We’re not going to wait forever, but we’re hoping it’s just around the corner…Sometime I think before the end of next summer, but we don’t have a date.”
