LezDiff: Writing The Lesbians Back In

Mon 1 January 0001 - Sun 10 July 2022


Presented as part of LezDiff - Cardiff International Lesbian Film & Arts Festival

It’s often noted that ‘Women are written out of History’ but for lesbian women, this is doubly the case. Join us in an entertaining and educational morning exploring the myriad ways our performers and writers are making sure the Lesbians are written back in!


Queer Tales From Wales present: An Extraordinary Female Affection – The Life and Love of the Ladies of Llangollen.

See an intriguing pair of women brought back to life through letters, diaries, songs – and sensational headlines.

Written and researched by Jane Hoy. Performed by Jane Hoy and Helen Sandler. For more about the show, click here
