Details

Peter Ackroyd brings his encyclopedic knowledge of London’s past to this survey of the capital’s gay and lesbian population through alternating periods of permissiveness and censure. Considering such figures as Chaucer’s effeminate Pardoner and the fashionable female transvestites of the 1620s, he traces attitudes towards same-sex relations in literature, law and everyday life, excavates the hidden histories of the city’s queer counter-culture and reveals how generations of Londoners have challenged gender roles.
