“Let us admit in the privacy of our own society that these things sometimes happen. Sometimes women do like women.”Virginia Woolf, A Room of One’s Own

Almost the entire body of Virginia Woolf’s writing – her novels, essays and letters – have been interpreted from a variety of queer perspectives, and her work has inspired many modern interpretations across film, dance and theatre.

Joining BBC Radio 3 presenter Shahidha Bari, authors Paul Mendez and Francesca Wade will discuss and debate Woolf’s legacy for modern queer writing, as well as lesser-known queer histories of Bloomsbury, in the final event of Dalloway Day 2020.

Broadcast at 10pm on BBC Radio 3 Free Thinking, available afterwards as an Arts and Ideas podcast. This event was originally scheduled to take place at British Library.
