Homosexuals and lesbians have led turbulent lives over the centuries; many were forced into exile or went into voluntary exile from their homelands to escape persecution. This book looks at gay exile through the experiences of some of the most eminent homosexuals in history, among them Benvenuto Cellini and William Beckford, poets and writers such as Thomas Gray, Oscar Wilde and WH Auden, and the Ladies of Llangollen, the most famous lesbians in Europe.
