To celebrate LGBT History Month 2020, this panel will explore queer lives and experiences through items of clothing. The top hat, for example, viewed as a signifier of the effeminate “dandy” before being appropriated by British imperial and industrial masculinity, has also adorned the heads of queer women such as the Ladies of Llangollen, Marlene Dietrich and Hetty King. This panel will use sartorial items as entry points to understand queer expression and identities.
