Fanny & Stella: Unforgotten

A new play by Taggart writer Glenn Chandler charts the forgotten story of two cross-dressers and a notorious 1870s court case..
The Observer.

This is the 'forgotten story' that was the subject of Neil McKenna's book, Fanny & Stella: The Young Men Who Shocked Victorian England, published by Faber in 2013.

It was widely reviewed, The Guardian published a lengthy and thoughtful one by Kathryn Hughes, complete with an online photo gallery.

It's the first thing that comes up if you Google 'Fanny Stella' - hard to believe even this was beyond the journalist.

PS The Observer also has an article about homophobia in sport!!! SNORE!
