Summary

Soho has a long history of embracing gender fluidity. One of its more famous eighteenth-century residents was the Chevalier d’Eon, who moved relatively seamlessly between living as a man and as a woman and, in doing so, set the foundations for Soho’s subsequent association with sex and gender as categories to be played with.
