Comedian Eddie Izzard receives support for using ‘she’ and ‘her’ pronouns: ‘It feels very positive’


Eddie Izzard, a British actor, and comedian, announced that she would use the pronouns “she” and “her.”

According to the Huffington Post, Izzard announced the news on a British television show.

“This is the first program I’ve asked if I can be ‘she’ and ‘her,” Izzard said in a clip of Sky Arts’ “Portrait Artist of the Year.” She also explained how this was a little transition period.

While being a comedian in the United Kingdom, Izzard has made appearances in “Ocean’s Twelve” and “Ocean’s Thirteen.”

The comedian was one of the portrait subjects on the show and said that “it feels great because people just assume that they just know me from before ... but I’m gender fluid. I just want to be based in girl mode from now on.”

A social media user on Twitter captured the moment and posted it to their official account.

The caption read, “For anyone who was confused, here is what Eddie said about her pronouns from now on. #EddieIzzard #TransIsBeautiful."

Izzard explained how this situation “feels very positive.”

The Human Rights Campaign tweeted support to the comedian and captioned the post, “Thanks for allowing us on this adventure with you, Eddie, and for encouraging others to live their life openly and authentically!”
