Pride of Place project honours LGBTQ men and women whose historical significance has been ignored or underestimated
The homes of Oscar Wilde, Benjamin Britten and Anne Lister, a woman considered the first modern lesbian, are being relisted as part of a gay history project undertaken by Historic England.
The heritage organisation has also announced that the grave of Amelia Edwards, a Victorian novelist and Egyptologist, is to be given listed status for the first time.
The listings are the result of a project called Pride of Place. Duncan Wilson, chief executive of Historic England, said buildings and places were witnesses to events that shaped society, but lesbian and gay stories had often been neglected.
Too often, the influence of men and women who helped build our nation has been ignored, underestimated or is simply unknown, because they belonged to minority groups, he said.
