Comedian and politician Eddie Izzard has announced that she is gender-fluid and is using the female pronouns she and her.
Eddie will now use the pronouns and be permanently switched to “girl mode” from now on, according to an interview she gave to the Sky Arts programme, Portrait Artist of the Year, she also said that she considered herself genderfluid. Eddie also said that she had asked that she and her pronouns be used during the show – to mark the start of her “transition period”.
She said, “Well, I try to do things that I think are interesting, and this is the first program I’ve asked if I can be ‘she’ and ‘her.’ The transition period,” she said.
Eddie has flirted with gender expression throughout her career and would often wear feminine clothing such as high-heeled shoes and makeup.
Girl mode activated
Speaking about the label of genderfluid and what “mode” she’d rather be in from now on, Eddie Izzard said, “Well, it feels great, because people just assume that … well, they just know me from before. I’m gender-fluid. I just want to be based in girl mode from now on”.
Eddie has spoken before about having “modes” in 2019 she told Windy City Times, “I have boy mode and girl mode. I am kind of gender fluid. I want to express both sides of myself, which has always been there. I am a tomboy and tomgirl kind of person,”
