queen of lesbian history

Christina Aquilera purchased a Banksy for about $43,500USD. Whether she was aware of the lesbian connotations of the painting or not is debatable. However, she was quite “taken by the controversial art work” and “decided she wanted it for her home” from female first.

The painting (possibly NSFW) shows the late Queen Victoria, who passed anti-homosexual laws and “famously believed women were incapable of being gay”, depicted as a lesbian. Victoria, clad in stockings and garter belt, is painted in a compromising position with another woman.
