LGBT Community in the Victorian Era

Whenever I research historical eras, I tend to focus on how members of the LGBT community lived. According to my google search, the Victorian era had a rather liberal view towards gay males. During the Victorian era, citizens were gaining an understanding of modern sexuality ideals. Yet,they still lived in a patriarchal world, and lesbians were considered abnormal, but men having sex with other men was not. Interesting. *insert eye-roll herelead_960.jpg
