Last week, Eddie Izzard appeared on Late Night with Seth Meyers. Where the stand-up comedian and prospective MP stated that she now uses both her previous identity and a new moniker,

On Monday night, Eddie made a guest appearance on Matt Forde's Political Party podcast, and according to Politico, she revealed her new name to the public during the chat.

Eddie reaffirmed this on the podcast; however, she noted that she "doesn't mind" when people refer to her with "he/him" pronouns. Eddie declared in 2020 that she would be using "she/her" pronouns going forward.

Eddie Izzard revealed her new name.

"I’m Eddie," she mentioned, before continuing: "There’s another name I’m going to add in as well, which is Suzy, which I wanted to be since I was 10." I'm going to be Suzy Eddie Izzard.

Eddie spoke about her "coming out" phase in 1985.

In 2021, Eddie spoke resolutely and drastically about her coming out as gender-fluid in an interview with HuffPost UK. She spoke about how she wants to spend the other 50 years of her life in girl mode while she has already spent the first half as a boy.

Concluding on the same, she stated it's nothing but just a language adjustment towards her, which shouldn’t be a matter of concern for others.

The comedian, who is proudly gender fluid, wants people to only support her for who she is; whether it is he or she, it shouldn’t matter to them. As long as pronouns don’t matter, coming out in a year like 1985 was tough because people were not aware of what it meant to be gender-fluid, since during that era many were conservative and had narrow-minded thinking.

Eddie Izzard wraps up the conversation with Matt Forde.

"Some individuals were transphobic when I was going for the [MP] selection; coming out as trans was not easy back in 1985," Eddie remarked in an interview with Matt Forde.

She continued by saying that ‘I don’t know [how many genders there are], but we’re all somewhere on the spectrum, and we have just got to chill out about it’.
