Cynthia Nixon desperate to wed lesbian lover in New York
London: Sex and the City star Cynthia Nixon has said that she cannot wait to get married to her lesbian lover in New York.
Nixon, 44, wants to tie the knot with lover Christine Marinoni in her hometown so much that she has urged lawmakers in New York to prioritise the legalisation of same-sex marriage.
The actress has been engaged to education activist Marinoni for one year and she admits her dream wedding would take place in the Big Apple.
But Nixon is not against the idea of exchanging vows in another state, if she is left with no other options.
“We’re not gonna wait forever for New York, we’re trying to get New York to get its act together but if we have to we’ll go somewhere else. But ideally we’d like to do it at home,” the Daily Express quoted her as saying.
Nixon announced her engagement at a gay rights rally in New York last year, revealing they would soon be walking down the aisle.
However, a bill to legalise same-sex marriage in New York was rejected by the State Senate in December (09).
