Own a Piece of Lesbian TV History

Love "Tipping the Velvet"? Now is your chance to win some swag from the series.



Actor Rachael Stirling and website creator Bonnie Gough are launching a charity auction to raise money for the Too Many Women campaign for Breakthrough Breast Cancer. Fans will remember Rachel Stirling as Nancy Astley in the BBC series Tipping the Velvet adapted from the famous novel by Sarah Waters.

The auction is your chance to get your hands on some TV props, memorabilia, DVDs and signed photos from Tipping the Velvet and Lip Service, as well as the opportunity to have high tea in London with Rachael Stirling herself. The auction will run from this Wednesday, May 18, 2011 until Saturday May 28, 2011.

The pieces to be auctioned off are memorable props from the series, including the gold painted phallus which the character Nan wears in the second episode, when she is spray-painted with gold paint for Lady Diana Lethaby's pleasure at a party. The other is the "Nan King" nameplate from Stirling's dressing room door. To see the full catalog of available items and to hear more about the project, visit rachael-stirling.com/charity/.

The aim is to raise £5,000 ($8,809) before July 31, 2011, so the race is on!
