"I try to do things that I think are interesting, and this is the first program I’ve asked if I can be she and her. A little transition period," she told Curtis Holder, the artist who was painting her.

She continued:

"Well, it feels great because people just assume that they just know me from before but I’m gender fluid. I just want to be based in girl mode from now on."

We're 100% behind you, Eddie!

She recently announced she has known she is transgender from the age of around 4...

Eddie admitted she couldn't believe that some were surprised by her words because she has felt this way since childhood.

​She said: "I've known I was trans since I was four or five. My feelings from the age of five have not moved an inch. Have not moved a centimeter, a millimeter even."

'"Thirty-five years ago, I came out. The rest is language."

"I went through such hell since '85 that the idea that I've come out recently just sounds ridiculous."

We support her all the way!
