ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Actress and New York gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon has announced that her oldest child has come out as transgender.

The former “Sex and the City” star posted the announcement on her Instagram account on Friday to mark the 14th annual Trans Day of Action. Her 21-year-old son Samuel Joseph Mozes, who goes by the nickname Seph, originally was named Samantha.

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