Currently, Nixon is running for governor of New York state and has been quite vocal about the political climate in America. Given that she represents a number of marginalized groups it's no surprise that she is giving her platform to speak to such an important day in during pride.

To disclose how an individual identifies is a personal choice but it's so nice to see someone like Nixon, who has such a vast reach, celebrate a worthy cause.
