Next year in 8-parts; HBO, BBC One, and Happy Valley’s Sally Wainwright will start filming a show based on “the first modern lesbian” aka Anne Lister. Based on her lifelong (all 4 million words of it) diary in which she wrote about dating, falling in love with women and actually marrying one!
Lister, not only a landowner in the 19th-century when women were little more than property, but was an avid traveler, and outdoors person who enjoyed wearing masculine clothes. She was a learned scholar with practical know how for business. Basically, I could not be more excited for this show to air!
