Queer Female Pirates Unerased From History

Inexorable - Lesbian Pirates

Two trailblazing female pirates who shared a tender same-sex romance have been commemorated with a striking new statue.

Anne Bonny and Mary Read, born in the late 18th century, have largely been erased from history by predominantly male historians – but now, they are taking their rightful place in the annals of the past.

The women, who were lovers, have been immortalised by artist Amanda Cotton in a sculpture titled Inexorable.

Previewed at London’s Execution Docks on 18 November, the artwork was commissioned to mark the launch of Hell Cats, a new Audible podcast that celebrates Bonny and Read’s lives and their love for one another.
