Cynthia Nixon was very enthusiastic about the legalization of same sex marriages back in 2009. During many of her interviews, she reiterated that, it’s the choice of the people to decide how they want to spend their lives and with whom. She was totally against the interference of state in the personal affairs of the people. She observed "While I don't often use the word, the technically precise term for my orientation is bisexual. I believe bisexuality is not a choice, it is a fact. What I have 'chosen' is to be in a gay relationship.
Furthermore, talking about her sexual orientation, Cynthia Nixon also expressed that, she doesn’t feel that loving a woman "In terms of sexual orientation, I don't feel I've changed. I'd been with men all my life and I'd never fallen in love with a woman. But when I did, it didn't seem strange. I'm just a woman in love with another woman."
