Gross Indecency: The Three Trials of Oscar Wilde
April, 1895...Oscar Wilde is England's reigning man of letters, with two plays running concurrently in London's West End. Lord Alfred Douglas, the Marquess of Queensberry, leaves a card at Wilde's club, referring to Wilde as a "posing somdomite."
Wilde sues the Marquess for criminal libel, thus setting in motion the tragic series of events that led to Wilde's conviction and imprisonment for "gross indecency with male persons."
