After being called an unqualified lesbian by an aid of Governor Andrew Cuomo, actress Cynthia Nixon dismissed the comment.

Nixon, who starred on the television “Sex and the City,” was put down by former New York City Council member Christine Quinn, according to Cosmopolitan. Quinn had an issue with Nixon endorsed Bill de Blasio instead of her in Quinn’s mayoral campaign.

"Yesterday, when I announced my candidacy, one of Governor Cuomo's top surrogates dismissed me as an 'unqualified lesbian,'” Nixon said in response at a campaign launch event. “And I just want to say tonight, that she was technically right. I don't have my certificate from the Department of Lesbian Affairs, but in my defense, there is a lot of paperwork involved."

Quinn later clarified her remarks on Twitter,  stating it was not about her sexuality.

“As a lesbian who ran one of the most high profile races in the country, i know what that’s like,” she tweeted. “And I know it’s imperative that we encourage more members of our community to run for office.”
