The two are seen with their arms around one another smiling at the camera. Samuel is dressed in a cap and gown.

It is the first time that Nixon has opened up about her 21-year-old son, born Samantha Mozes in November 1996.


‘I’m so proud of my son Samuel Joseph Moses (called Seph) who graduated college this month. I salute him and everyone else marking today’s #TransDayofAction. #TDOA.’

Cynthia and her then-partner Danny Mozes have another son, Charles Ezekiel, born in December 2012. The two were together from 1988 to 2003.

The actress began dating Christine Marinoni in 2004. She worked for New York City’s Deputy Mayor Richard Buery. Nixon and Marinoni married in May 2012 and have a son together.


According to Daily Mail, Seph had mostly remained out of the public eye, though he was occasionally spotted. He has kept a low profile since his mother announced that she was running for Governor of New York. She is up against incumbent Andrew Cuomo.

Nixon has attended Pride events in the past, without Seph accompanying her. She has always tried to keep her children away from the limelight.

Seph has been living as Trans for several years. However, the Instagram post is the first time Nixon has acknowledged it publicly.

During her campaigns as an LGTBQ advocate, she has supported the rights of transgender individuals. She has also been advocating for the legalization of marijuana and an increase in the funding for public education.
