Cynthia Nixon To NOM Pres: 'We Have No Desire To Change Marriage'

Yesterday, several panelists took the stage at the New Yorker Festival's session for "Love and Obstacles: The Case for Gay Marriage." Joining victorious Prop 8 lawyer David Boies were R. Clarke Cooper, Gene Robinson, Jeffrey Toobin and Cynthia Nixon and NOM's Brian Brown, who sat to Nixon's left.

The Sex & the City star made a very clear, coherent counter argument to Brown's view that, by seeking marriage equality, gays and lesbians wish to completely redefine marriage. Said Nixon:

"I want to say to the gentleman to my left, gay people who want to marry have no desire to redefine marriage in any way. When women got the vote they did not redefine voting. When African-Americans got the right to sit at a lunch counter alongside white people, they did not redefine eating out. They were simply invited to the table...We have no desire to change marriage. We want to be entitled to not only the same privileges, but the same responsibilities as straight people."

Brown must think this is just more gay trickery at work. Watch the clip of Nixon's well-received comment, AFTER THE JUMP.

Also, Broadway World has photos from the panel.

Watch: Cynthia Nixon Fights Back Against Anti-Gay NY Senators

Cynthia Nixon has recorded a video in support of Fight Back NY, the new PAC targeting New York state senator Hiram Monserrate and others who voted against marriage equality in the Empire State.

Nixon Says Nixon in the spot: "I am a lifelong New Yorker but I don't have the rights that most of my friends and neighbors do. I'm engaged to the woman I love, but on December 2, the New York State Senate voted against my right to marry her. Last year prior to the vote, so many of us went up to Albany to speak with our state senators about why marriage equality is so important to us and to our families. They didn't get the message. They still think that it's okay to treat me and hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers like second-class citizens. I'm not okay with that. That's why I've decided to fight back. I'm supporting Fight Back New York so that we can finally show these anti-equality state senators that there are consequences to their actions - that they can lose their seats for voting against our rights. Fight Back New York is a smart, strategic political action committee, with the sole purpose of defeating senators who voted 'no' on equality. Join me and fight back. Sign up and donate today at One hundred percent of every dollar that you contribute will go directly toward taking anti-equality senators out of office. We've tried the carrot, now it's time for the stick. It's time for anyone who believes in equality to fight back."


In related news, Fight Back NY tells Towleroad that its fourth piece of mail is hitting mailboxes in Hiram Monserrate's district now. Monserrate has been using attacks against gay people as his primary campaign tactic.
