Eddie Izzard - shopping at Mac store in Soho
New York City - May 14, 2014
When I was a kid I saw his HBO special. I watched it so many times I still know most of the words. It was the first time I saw a man dressed feminine, be funny, and not have women as a punch line. He didn’t slump out in front of the stage embarrassed by his clothing, he came out perfectly happy, hoping around, and didn’t do some silly feminine voice for laughs, he just used his voice, he wore his clothes, spoke about social injustice, and he was fucking funny. It was nice to watch a comedian and not be the fucking punch line or a flattened stereotype for laughs.
Eddie Izzard has always been my favorite since I was young. I never thought about it, but his identity and way he dressed were never really part of the joke. Being feminine was not for laughs and he unabashedly was who he was and never apologized. I saw him perform live and he’s positively electric.
He would walk on stage in full makeup and a sparkly dress and I think within five minutes of speaking he had a way of making every cis/heteronormative person stop seeing him as “atypical.” He always shut that down.
In recent years I haven’t seen him expressing himself as much, and I worried he was trying to conceal his love of dressing feminine in order to be more successful in the acting field, but I’m really glad to see he’s back to the bright lipstick and fierce nails.
He really did make being feminine a powerful thing and not just a punchline and he showed me a lot about gender expression and identity at a young age when I had never seen anything like it.

Martin Freeman as Richard III
I apologize for the crappy cell phone photo. I’m also getting to the point where I really don’t want to draw the crap on the desk, but that would just look weird, so, yea, I’ll probably draw it…

[x] So, in summary, Oscar Wilde and Arthur Conan Doyle got along “like a house on fire” and the same night that they met was instrumental in the creation of Sherlock Holmes…

Aaaaaaawwwwwwww! Poor giant baby!
I know! He’s very sensitive and my brother thinks it’s funny to scare him.
He’s like a toddler tattling on someone.
Look at that side-eye. My brother is being a jackass and crinkling a water bottle at my poor puppy. (he’s scared of them)

What exactly would you do in that job?
I would work under an anthropologist and help assess/take care of the historical buildings/culturally significant sites within the National Park. It’s basically a park ranger/historian hybrid.
