Call me Suzy, says Eddie Izzard

- By David Churchill

COMEDIAN Eddie Izzard has revealed that she now uses the name ‘Suzy’.

The gender-fluid star and aspiring Labour MP, 61, said she alternates between the original name and the new one.

She revealed the change on Matt Forde’s Political Party podcast on Monday night. Izzard has used ‘she/her’ pronouns since 2020, but told Forde: ‘I prefer to see she/her, I don’t mind he/ him... I’m Eddie. There’s another name I’m going to add in as well, which is Suzy, which I wanted to be since I was ten. I’m going to be Suzy Eddie Izzard. That’s how I’m going to roll, so people can choose what they want.’ She also pledged to ‘keep going until I get in’ as a Labour MP after losing out on selection for the Sheffield Central seat in December. Izzard also said it was not transphobi­c to oppose Nicola Sturgeon’s Gender Recognitio­n Bill. There have been concerns that 16 was too young an age to legally change gender.
