Faces of LGBT History Month: Jackie Forster

Jackie Forster (1926-1998) was a pioneer in the cause of lesbian rights. She co-founded the magazine Sappho in 1972 and throughout her life was an activist and political agitator. "If she had served any cause other than lesbian rights, she'd have been festooned with honours; she would have been Dame Jackie Forster," said writer and academic Gill Hanscombe.
