Hit or Miss

Same Sex in the City

The rumor went around yesterday about Cynthia Nixon planning to come out as a lesbian. Which she did today.

Somehow, I thought I had already heard she was gay. When Jeff and I saw her in April in the audience at “First Lady Suite,” she was with a woman I assumed was her partner. Interestingly, the last segment of that show featured Eleanor Roosevelt (who Nixon has just signed on to play in a HBO movie) and her rumored lesbian lover, Lorena Hickok.
