Now You See Me: Lesbian Life Stories

TORCH, Radcliffe Observatory Quarter, Woodstock Road, Oxford OX2 6GG
TORCH Seminar Room

 

Join QSN and Dr Jane Traies for a launch of the book “Now You See Me: Lesbian Life Stories", a collection of powerful personal accounts which brings to light previously undocumented lesbian and bisexual women’s lives.
Jane will read from the book and be interviewed about her life, including her experiences as a lesbian at St Anne's College Oxford during the early 60s, where she formed the lesbian writing partnership known as Jay Taverner. 
Janae Traies has been recording the life stories of older women who identify as lesbian and bisexual for nearly a decade and would like to use this event to remember a time when being a lesbian meant either hiding your true identity or paying the price for breaking society’s rules.
‘A pure delight from beginning to end' - Clare Summerskill.

There will be readings, refreshments and the chance to buy a signed copy of the book. £1 from each copy sold goes to the Lesbian Immigration Support Group.
