Actress and two time Tony Award winner, Cynthia Nixon, best known for her iconic role as Miranda Hobbes in the series, Sex and the City, has announced her official bid to run for Governor of the state of New York. In true Miranda form, Cynthia is set to break barriers and make history. If elected she will become the first female Governor of New York and the first openly gay governor in the state.
In a video posted on Twitter, she says, “Our leaders are letting us down,” bringing light to the inequities in New York spliced between images of her walking on the streets of New York City, spending time with her family and taking the subways.

“New York is my home,” Nixon says in the ad. “I’ve never lived anywhere else. When I grew up here, it was just my mom and me in a one-bedroom fifth-floor walk-up. New York is where I was raised and where I’m raising my kids. I’m a proud public school graduate and a prouder public school parent. I was given chances I just don’t see for most of New York’s kids today.” “Something has to change,” she says. “We want our government to work again, on health care, ending mass incarceration, fixing our broken subway. We are sick of politicians who care more about headlines and power than they do about us. It can’t just be business as usual anymore.”
Nixon has been a long time advocate for LGBTQ rights and has been hinting towards this run for some time now. Her focus is currently on the extreme wage gap in the state of New York and the disparity between wealth and poverty across the state.
