Out Film CT is collaborating with the Wadsworth Atheneum to bring you the film Tipping the Velvet, the erotic lesbian romp through the 1890s Victorian England underworld, with prostitution, cross-dressing, music halls, and rich society women who keep love slaves. Find yourself cheering for our heroine Nan as she stumbles on the way from village oyster girl to London’s unsavory West End. Will she ultimately find her own identity–and true love to boot?
