When asked what pronouns he prefers, Izzard said “either ‘he’ or ‘she.’ ” In the past, Izzard identified as a transvestite, and he has also called himself “a lesbian trapped in a man’s body” and “a complete boy plus half girl”. Izzard started to publicly identify as transvestite in venues such as the Edinburgh Festival as early as 1992. His stance is that the way he dresses is neither part of his performance nor a sexual fetish. He said “I don’t call it drag; I don’t even call it cross-dressing. It’s just wearing a dress. … It’s not about artifice. It’s about me just expressing myself.” He remarks in his show Unrepeatable that “women wear what they want and so do I”. He has expressed a personal conviction that being transgender is caused by genetics and that someday this will be scientifically proven, having gone so far as to have his own genome sequenced.
