The Victorian era was the heyday of gender roles and social conformity, right? Perhaps, perhaps not – but in either case, the social order is not complete without rule breakers! Come get to know a sample of LGBT Victorians who bent the rules of their society, and discuss the difficulties (and rewards) of searching for queer history.
