Suzy Eddie Izzard new name
Suzy Eddie Izzard, the Emmy-winning comedian and activist, has announced her new name and pronouns in a recent episode of the Political Party podcast.
From now on, she will go by the name Suzy Eddie Izzard and use she/her pronouns.
The decision to adopt a new name and pronouns came after Izzard had been using feminine pronouns publicly since 2020. In the podcast, she explained that she had wanted to go by the name Suzy since she was 10 years old, but felt she couldn’t change her public-facing name once her Hollywood career began picking up.
However, Izzard eventually decided to add Suzy to her name, along with the pronouns she/her, in order to fully express her identity. As she put it, “people can choose what they want and no one can go wrong.”
This is not the first time that Izzard has publicly spoken about her gender identity. She came out as transgender in the 1980s and began using the pronouns she/her in 2019 after being referred to with those pronouns during a ceremony in which she was presented with an honorary degree.
Izzard has had a long and successful career in film and television, appearing in movies like “Ocean’s 11” and TV shows like “Hannibal.” She is also a dedicated political activist and a member of the UK’s Labour Party.
In announcing her new name and pronouns, Izzard is joining a growing number of public figures who are choosing to express their gender identity more fully. By being open and honest about her experiences, she is helping to create a more inclusive and accepting world for all.
