Actress and activist Cynthia Nixon recorded a spot to support Fight Back New York, the new political action committee targeting former New York state Senator Hiram Monserrate and others who voted against marriage equality.
The "Sex and the City" actress says in part: "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."
