Cynthia Nixon on Civil Rights
History of pro-gay rights with established credibility
"My being a lesbian or her being a lesbian I think has nothing to do with why we're running for office," Nixon told the scrum on her way out of an appearance. The 51-year-old has never held public office, but as an activist she has lobbied
