A Very Queer Romance

AS NORTH WALES GEARS UP FOR ITS ANNUAL PRIDE EVENT, NAT NEWMAN INTRODUCES THE LADIES OF LLANGOLLEN THE COOLEST LADY LOVERS YOU’VE NEVER HEARD OF

On a stormy night in 1778, Lady Eleanor Butler put on men’s clothes, climbed out the window of her aristocratic home at Kilkenny Castle, and made her way to Woodstock, 12 miles away. She was riding a horse for the first time in her life. Her object? Miss Sarah Ponsonby, who at the same was climbing out of her own window, in men’s clothing, with her dog Frisk and a loaded pistol. Meet the A Very Queer Romance, the coolest lady-lovers you’ve never heard of.

About DIVA Magazine

Singer-songwriter and Same Love vocalist Mary Lambert talks self-love, body positivity and mental health with DIVA this month. We also snagged an exclusive photo-shoot with her and you lucky digital readers can watch the behind the scenes film we made of it. Elsewhere in the issue is ANOTHER behind the scenes video of a very different photo-shoot. This one was a first for DIVA: dogs in designer-wear. It's our favourite fashion shoot to date and the photos and video must be seen to be believed!
