Christine Marinoni is a education activist in New York City. Christine and Cynthia first met when Cynthia was trying to fight budget cuts at her daughter’s school.
Cynthia Nixon said of their relationship – “I never felt like there was an unconscious part of me around that woke up or that came out of the closet; there wasn’t a struggle, there wasn’t an attempt to suppress. I met this woman, I fell in love with her, and I’m a public figure.” She also once described Christine as ” basically a short man with boobs,” adding that, “a lot of what I love about her is her butchness. I’m not saying I fell in love with her in a sexually neutral way. I love her sexuality – it’s a big part of what I love about her – but I feel like it was her.”
