Anonymous asked: So my mum's a big fan of Eddie Izzard so I happen to know he identifies as either a hetero transvestite or a male lesbian. I've heard the term 'male lesbian' before but could you enlighten me to what exactly it is? Also, is it a sexual orientation or a gender identity?
A “male lesbian” is a person who identifies as male but who is attracted to women, presents in usually a feminine matter, and is interested in queer female culture. It’s more a sexual orientation but it’s kind of a grey area. In the realm of gender ambiguous people there are a lot of words and phrases that they can use to describe themselves. “male lesbian” or “executive transvestite” (another identity of Eddie Izzard) are just a couple out of countless possibilities. I don’t know everything about all identities because it varies so much from person to person.
