Neil McKenna on Fanny and Stella

We had the pleasure of speaking to Neil McKenna this afternoon about his book Fanny & Stella: The Young Men Who Shocked Victorian England

It was the scandal that gripped the nation; a story that had everything – gay sex, cross-dressing, prostitution, a state trial, conspiracy… But at the centre says Neil McKenna are two brave young men.

Read the exclusive blog posts which Neil wrote for us last year in recognition of LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) History Month, where he pieces together and finds a pattern in some fragments from his life as a writer.
