Cynthia Nixon has joined the fight to
oust senators who voted against a gay marriage bill in New York.
The openly lesbian Nixon stars in a new
video for Fight
Back NY, the political action committee that is targeting
“I'm supporting Fight Back New York
so we can finally show these anti-equality senators that there are
consequences to their actions,” Nixon says in the video.
“I'm engaged to the woman I love, but
on December 2, the New York Senate voted against my right to marry
her. They still think it's OK to treat me and … other New Yorkers
like second-class citizens,” she added.
The Sex and the City star
campaigned heavily for passage of the law last year, appearing often
at rallies and demonstrations with her fiancee, Christine Marinoni.
First on the list for Fight Back NY is
ex-state Senator Hiram Monserrate, who was booted from the New York
Senate last month after being convicted of assaulting his girlfriend.
Gay activists say Monserrate, a Democrat, reneged on a promise to
vote in favor of the gay marriage bill. Monserrate is campaigning to
win back his job in Tuesday's special election.
