Prejudice and Pride. Celebrating LGBTQ heritage. A National Trust Guide.

Descrizione

Both celebratory and reflective, this captivating guidebook sheds light on the LGBTQ heritage of many National Trust people and places. It commemorates figures such as Vita Sackville-West and her husband Harold Nicolson, owners of Sissinghurst Castle in Kent, but also delves into the lives of lesser-known individuals associated with Trust landscapes and collections, such as William Bankes, who fled from his home at Kingston Lacy to avoid prosecution for homosexuality, and lived abroad for the last 15 years of his life. From Smallhythe, Monk s House and Nymans in the South East, to Mount Stewart in Northern Ireland and Ickworth in Suffolk, the Trust is exploring places that have been touched and shaped by the sexuality of their inhabitants, workers, owners and guests. This guidebook will bring to light turbulent stories of exile and tragedy, tales of loving relationships and family, and sometimes challenging histories of public front and private expression.
