I Love London Girls Project.

Does anyone have any lesbian london historical visual or literary evidence for a documentary film we are making...

Lesbian London project aimed at giving Londons Lesbian History a voice.

The project began as a series of images that were made into a stylish calendar for 2008, showing a stylised/theatrical view of londons lesbian history. During the shoot photographer Nadia Attura asked film makers Ana Godinho de Matos and Terri Murray to film the lesbian models in costume. Using these images as a series of flashbacks Anabel Unity Sale, Ana Godinho de Matos and Nadia Attura collected Lesbian Oral histories from london's Lesbians. They interviewed, writers, journalists, activists, actors, accademics and other lesbian londoners about their experiances as Lesbians in London. The film interviews women who came out in the 1950's, 1960's, 1970's, 1980's and to the present day. The film traces lesbian history as far back as Elizabethan and even Roman foundations of london!

I am not knowledgeable on this particular subject, but just signed up for the glbtq and note the history discussion group doesn't look very active. Did anyone reply to you?

Hi there, no one has replied yet. Challenging to find any documented lesbian history earlier than the time of equal voting rights. No history older than 80 years.

Hello,

I appreciate the fact that you are researching the topic, and even making a documentary on it. I think it's an undiscovered, curious, and amazing working ground for artists and people interested in queer theory. I'd like to recommend this material for you, I've read it and I think it depicts the historical elements of the subject, plus a lot of intriguing insight.

Jason
