Decoding Anne Lister: History’s First Modern Lesbian

November 18 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

|Recurring Events (See all)
Open for fall hours, Tuesday to Saturday, 10 am to 4 pm (last entry at 3 pm)

Reviled and hidden away for decades because of the stories they contained, Anne Lister’s diaries and her life will be the focus of an exhibit opening this September at the Leacock Museum. Now famously known as history’s first modern lesbian and the focus of a popular TV show, Anne Lister meticulously captured the details of her life including love affairs, business deals, and politics in a partially encoded diary that scholars have worked for decades to transcribe. The exhibit will focus on the life of this revolutionary British lesbian while exploring themes of Canadian Queer history, the art of code breaking, and the world in which Anne Lister existed.
