Created by Sally Wainwright, Gentleman Jack unearths and explores the beauty, joys and harsh realities of lesbian relationships in 18th Century England. With the incredible resource of Ann Lister’s real diaries, translated from code, the world was given an insight into the prolific sexual life of a formidable woman, who was determined to live unbound by convention in every aspect of her life, especially in her sex life. The intimate scenes aim to expose the truths of female sexual relationships and are a necessary nod to the complex natures of female partnerships. The second series is currently in production. How exciting.
