Cynthia Nixon tries to clear it all up: ‘The technically precise term for my orientation is bisexual.’
Cynthia Nixon is someone I really admire as an actress and who I appreciate as an activist for her eloquent defense of marriage equality.
But she got herself into a bit of mess when instead of simply saying she is bisexual, Nixon said that for her being gay is a choice.
She has released a statement to The Advocate in which she clarifies it all. It seems sufficiently clear so that we can all move on with our lives and continue to appreciate the artistry of this very fine actress who is currently on Broadway in Wit.
‘While I don’t often use the word, the technically precise term for my orientation is bisexual,’ Nixon said in a statement to The Advocate. ‘I believe bisexuality is not a choice, it is a fact. What I have ‘chosen’ is to be in a gay relationship.’
