Cynthia Nixon saluted her son Samuel today as the pair celebrate the 14th Annual Trans Day of Action.
The proud mom and former Sex and the City star, who is currently running for Governor of New York, took to Instagram to post a picture of the pair and openly share for the first time that 21-year-old Samuel, born Samantha, is transgender.
‘I’m so proud of my son Samuel Joseph Moses (called Seph) who graduated college this month,’ she wrote. ‘I salute him and everyone else marking today’s #TransDayofAction. #TDOA.’
In the image, the two are seen with their arms around one another, smiling at the camera at Seph’s graduation from The University of Chicago; Samuel is dressed in a cap and gown.
Seph was born Samantha Mozes in November 1996 to Cynthia and her then-partner and college sweetheart Danny Mozes.
Cynthia and Danny were together from 1988 to 2003, and also had another son, Charles Ezekiel, who was born in December of 2002.
Shortly after their split in 2004, Cynthia began dating Christine Marinoni, an activist who, until recently, worked for New York City’s Deputy Mayor Richard Buery. Cynthia and Christine married in May 2012. They have another son together, Max, whom Christine gave birth to.
Seph has been mostly out of the public eye lately. Though he was occasionally spotted by paparazzi while out with his mom as a little kid, he’s been keeping a low profile since Cynthia announced her bid for governor against incumbent Andrew Cuomo.
Cynthia’s attended several Pride events this month and in years past, but Seph hasn’t yet tagged along or appeared at any campaign stops for his mom.
