Bishop Gene Robinson will officiate over the wedding of Cynthia Nixon and Christine Marinoni, reported.

Robinson, who serves as bishop of the diocese of New Hampshire, faced controversy nearly a decade ago when he became the first openly gay bishop in the Episcopal Church.

Nixon, who is best known for playing lawyer Miranda Hobbes on the HBO series Sex and the City, and education activist Marinoni are engaged to marry in New York.

“I've been invited by Cynthia and her partner to officiate at their ceremony over Memorial Day weekend,” Robinson told the site. “It's going to be my great pleasure to be there and to be a part of that celebration.”

Robinson also commented on Nixon's controversial assertion that being gay could be a choice.

Prior to dating Marinoni, Nixon was involved in a 15-year relationship with Danny Mozes, with whom she shares custody of two children.

“[F]or me, it is a choice,” Nixon told The New York Times. “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.”

“I think we go down a terrible road when we pin all of our arguments on the choice issue,” Robinson said. “One of the freedoms God gives us is the freedom to love whom we will, and then to love that person with all that we have. I think choice has very little to do with it.”
