While we can appreciate Samantha‘s oozing sex appeal, Carrie‘s enviable writing career and Charlotte‘s endless optimism, over here on team Edit Seven we’ve always been major fans of the one and only Miranda Hobbes. Smart, sassy and sexy, actress Cynthia Nixon will forever hold a special place in our hearts for her infamous portrayal of the career-driven, outspoken and brutally honest big-shot lawyer in the legendary Sex And The City girl squad.
We know our feelings for Cynthia are shared by many, and our love for her far surpasses just her acting career. This woman is openly bisexual (she was married to a man and had two kids before falling in love with a woman whom she later married), a breast cancer survivor, and a LGBT rights activist.
ICYMI, yesterday she announced she’s running for New York Governor and, to be honest, we’ve never really wished we could be American until now, just so we could vote for her. If you haven’t seen it yet, watch Cynthia’s powerful campaign video below:
As she shares here, Cynthia is an original New Yorker who was raised by a single mother in a one bedroom apartment in New York City. She’s a proud public school graduate, and an even prouder public school parent. Sadly, she doesn’t see the chances she was given for most of New York’s kids today, and points out that half the kids in upstate cities live below the poverty line. New York is now the most unequal state in the entire country, unbalanced by both incredible wealth and extreme poverty.
This is a woman to be reckoned with and she’s here to fight for where she came from. Cynthia for New York, we’re with you.
Now, Let’s Do This!
