Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

My sexuality is straight transvestite or male lesbian. It seems we are beyond the idea that I am gay and hiding it. If I had to describe how I feel in my head, I'd say I'm a complete boy plus half a girl. I don't seem to have the sixth sense that women have or their stronger senses of taste and smell. Gay men can also have it but straight men don't. See more »

Trivia:

Glen Quagmire chooses Eddie Izzard over Dame Judi Dench in one of Peter Griffin's hypothetical "Who would you rather do?" games, in the Family Guy (1998) episode "Screams of Silence: the story of Brenda Q". See more »

Trademark:

Often wears his choice of "male" and "female" clothing during his stand-up acts. See more »
