In the 19th century there were advantages and disadvantages, but Anne Lister did not have to complain. Being an English aristocrat, a woman from a young age was accustomed to keep a diary in which she wrote down her innermost thoughts. Lister tried to live so as not to succumb to the opinions of others, and when she realized that she was a lesbian, she quickly accepted this fact without unnecessary remorse.

Therefore, she was able to achieve such heights that most men do not even dare to dream of. Being a wealthy landowner, Lister adored traveling, devoted herself to mountaineering and was not embarrassed at all about her lesbian identity.
Being far from the laws of society, Anne wrote down in her diary even the smallest details of her love affairs. Among her acquaintances there were many people who openly condemned the woman and tried to impose their own truth on her. Possessing a truly masculine character, Lister was able to withstand the pressure of the public and keep her beliefs the same as they were at the beginning.
Since Anne did not conceal her attitude to the “true lady,” the frail surrounding people called her “Gentleman Jack” for this. And in fact – Lister had a masculine appearance and did not hesitate to have sex with other women. Whatever difficulties she had to overcome, she would be able to find a way out and at the same time never lower her head.
In season 2, Anne will continue her travels, entries in her favorite diary and new love affairs. Therefore, connect to the view – premiere season 2 is just around the corner! Lister will be able to achieve recognition of her orientation from others, because having such a character, you can achieve anything you want!
