Cynthia Nixon chose to be gays

Los Angeles: Former `Sex and the City` star Cynthia Nixon, who is engaged to her long-term partner Christine Marinoni, insists it was her decision to become a lesbian.

The 45-year-old, who has a son with Marinoni, said that homosexuality for her was a choice, reported Showbizspy.

"I gave a speech recently, an empowerment speech to a gay audience, and it included the line `I`ve been straight and I`ve been gay, and gay is better. And they tried to get me to change it, because they said it implies that homosexuality can be a choice. And for me, it is a choice.

"I understand that for many people it`s not, but for me it`s a choice, and you don`t get to define my gayness for me. A certain section of our community is very concerned that it not be seen as a choice, because if it`s a choice, then we could opt out," Nixon said.
