Cynthia Nixon on Trans Son: 'I Salute Him'

Back in November 1996, Samuel was born as Samantha to Cynthia and her then partner, Danny Mozes.

The former Sex and the City star and current NY gubernatorial candidate revealed on Instagram on Friday that her oldest child is transgender.

Cynthia is now running for governor of NY against Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, which she confirmed in March this year.

Former Sex and the City star and candidate for NY governor, Cynthia Nixon, posted a sweet tribute to her son on the 14th annual Trans Day of Action.

In the post, she mentioned how proud she was of Samuel, who goes by the nickname Seph, and that she "salutes" him.

Nixon shared the news in celebration of Trans Day of Action in the midst of his graduation earlier in the month from the University of Chicago. The flamed-haired actress split from Mozes in 2003 and came out as gay. The two also share a 15-year-old son, Charles, while Nixon is also mom to 7-year-old son Max with her wife, Christine Marinoni.

On Friday, the candidate for NY governor, 52, shared on Instagram that her oldest child, Samuel-known as Seph-is transgender. "On health care, ending massive incarceration, fixing our broken subway", Nixon said in her candidacy announcement video.

Nixon is challenging Gov. Andrew Cuomo in New York's Democratic primary for governor.

Plus, former co-star Kim Cattrall is in her corner, supporting Nixon's political run.
