“I'm all boy, mentally,” Eddie Izzard said in a
2004 interview, “plus girl-stuff.” The British comedian, who frequently appears on stage and off in lipstick, nail polish, and dresses, says he realized at the age of 4 that he was a transvestite. But he didn’t admit it to friends and family until he was 29. "If you can walk down the street in women's clothes, you can do anything,” Izzard
told The Independent. “The only way you change people's minds is by engaging them in discussion."
