One entry from the Department of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. The article examines the BBC One/HBO series Gentleman Jack (2019‐present). It analyzes the impact of Anne Lister’s (1791-1840) life and complex identity on queer histories and cultures. The article also maps the substance of the series, the circumstances of its coming into being and the fan response to provide some sense of the significance of Anne Lister and the fact that her life was hidden in plain sight for almost 200 years.
