Two years later, she opened up anew on her sexuality in a fresh Attitude interview. There, she explained that she might be identified as gay, bisexual or lesbian, but none of the terms was “particularly right” for her.

Nixon, who split from her husband after 15 years of marriage and started dating her now-wife, Christine Marinoni back in 2004, said: “To say ‘queer’ means, ‘I’m over there, I don’t have to go into the nuances of my sexuality with you.’”
