Back in my college days my roommates and I would have all-day "Sex and the City" watching marathons every Sunday (instead of doing our homework). I always felt drawn towards Cynthia Nixon's character, Miranda. Although she played a straight woman, her cynical, witty and hilarious neuroses was something I always identified with, so it came as no surprise that when the series ended, Cynthia Nixon bravely paraded out of the closet. It was then, that she started her life-long commitment and amazing work for the GLBT Community.

Monday night in the Big Apple, the 'Sex' girls reunited on the red carpet at a Point Foundation benefit that honored their Sex in the City Co-star Cynthia Nixon. According to People.com, the reunion went straight to Kim Cattrall's head. "It's like champagne," she said of seeing all her fellow costars. "It's intoxicating. My heart flutters a little bit."
The Point Foundation is the nation's largest scholarship-granting organization for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) students of merit. This past Monday, the Foundation gave its Courage awards honors to Cynthia Nixon, the Tony(R) and Emmy(R) award-winning actress who has made her mark in television, theater and film in such memorable characters in HBO's Sex and the City as Miranda Hobbes and as Eleanor Roosevelt in Warm Springs. Time Warner also received the Point Foundations Inspiration Award. Both awards were presented at Point's annual New York City benefit, Point Foundation Honors...The Arts, which was held Monday, April 7, 2008 at the Capitale on Bowery.
The Point Courage Award recognizes an individual who has selflessly advocated for the future of the LGBT community and lives with the vision that investing in today's potential will produce a brighter tomorrow. The Point Inspiration Award recognizes a corporation that champions respect and inclusion of the LGBT community, and operates with the vision that the success achieved by talented young people is limited only by the resources and opportunities they are given to help them fulfill their potential.
