Comedian Eddie Izzard has received praise and support after explaining on a British show that her pronouns are she/her. The British stand-up comedian — who has also acted in films including Valkyrie, Ocean’s Twelve and Ocean’s Thirteen as well as starring in the former FX show The Riches — shared the decision during an appearance on the Sky Arts series Portrait Artist of the Year this week, a recent report states.
Of late the notion of gender fluidity ought to receive a warm welcome among the society particularly through the celebrities. A month earlier ‘Harry styles’ came up with his gender flexible ensembles for Vogue magazine cover. And now its Eddie Izzard!
Izzard sat as a model last week for the Sky Arts’ Portrait Artist Of The Year where she publicly opened up about being gender fluid and embracing all the facets that make her unique. The yearly special brings together painters and the celebrity subjects they’ll draw as part of a competition.
“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. A little transition period,” she told Curtis Holder, the artist whose painting won the competition.
‘I just want to be based in girl mode from now on’, says Eddie Izzard
Izzard added that making the announcement “feel great” because “people 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.”
Izzard has long worn makeup and dresses, both on-stage and off, once quipping, “They’re not women’s clothes. They’re my clothes. I bought them.”
Once this proclamation was made, the social media was inundated with the shower of praises and love for the comedian. Soon after this Izzard has been receiving heaps of praise from fans.
“I woke up to see #EddieIzzard trending and feared the worst. I was delighted to see that she’s living her best life and it’s just some keyboard crybabies melting down over her pronouns’-posted one.
“I’ve loved #EddieIzzard ever since her role in Mystery Men telling the world that ‘disco is life!!’ and I don’t see that changing any time soon. Keep being a bad ass queen!!”-posted a second.
Eddie has thus painted a new sky for those who wish to embrace gender fluidity. Changes are always welcome!
