But what can they do in bed anyway? Lesbian sexuality and the law, Jenny White @ The People's History Museum

Female same sex acts have never been outlawed in the UK (at least in civilian society). It’s sometimes suggested that this was because Queen Victoria didn’t believe such a thing existed. But how true is this theory? Join Jenny White to explore historical beliefs about female biology and sexual desire, and examine how lesbian lives were policed in laws designed to tie women to a husband, children and the home.
