I read about this case in a book on gay history

Really fascinating. Fanny and Stella had boyfriends, too!

OMG that website is a hot mess.

I like the collage around the border but transparent backing behind the body copy is just wrong.

OP If you know the site admin, can you tell then to add a background behind the text to make it legible PLEASE!

But Stella had boobs when she was wearing a suit. Was she a woman or not? I think I'm confused.

Well, at last we find out Mrs. Patrick Campbell's true age!

more on them at link

[quote]The case demonstrated the relative freedom of the Victorian homosexual sub-culture at this time before the Labouchere Amendment later in the century made it easier for the authorities to prosecute homosexual men, as in the celebrated trial of Oscar Wilde.
