90 years ago, in November 1928, a magistrate ordered the destruction of Radclyffe Hall’s book, ‘The Well of Loneliness’. This session for LGBT History Month will take a light-hearted look at the book, the trial and subsequent impact – from my personal perspective. As Radclyffe Hall said, as she left the trial, “Believe me, the end is only the beginning.” How true is that?!
