By Unity Blott For Mailonline. Captured at a time when homosexuality was considered taboo, these remarkable images defiant women who flouted convention in the nineteenth and twentieth century. Kissing, embracing and reclining in intimate positions, the incredible black-and-white photographs provide a rare glimpse into women who dared to display physical love in the s and early s. The images capture Victorian and early-twentieth century females in intimate poses and showing a daring level of openness with one another for the era they were living in.
Show older lesbian women on screen, urges film director Rachel Dax
Guardian Soulmates has come to an end | | The Guardian
Award-winning film director Rachel Dax has called for more older lesbian women to be shown on screen. It was partly inspired by elderly gay people concealing their sexuality to avoid prejudice in care homes. Not all, but a lot of LGBT films with older characters are more male-focused. This needs to change and I hope this film will play a part in that happening. The film industry has previously been criticised for its focus on films that often involve the conversion of a younger, straight woman by an older gay woman, for example in 's Carol starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara.
