There are many stories that have been left out of recorded history, including those of LGBTQ people. So how can we find the traces of these lives and how do they change our understanding of history? In this episode, Clare Balding is joined by Cultural Historian and member of the National Trust Board of Trustees, Gus Casely-Hayford, and by Community Learning Manager at Sutton House, Sean Curran. E-J Scott visits Sissinghurst Castle Gardens in Kent to find out more about its famous LGBTQ residents and the less-well known life of Dawn Langley-Simmons.
