Setup Menus in Admin Panel

Rita Boyd

In Alan Moore’s V For Vendetta, a great war and devastating broke out in 1988. In England, a militant movement called Norsefire rose to power with the promise to save the country. Its slogan was “Strength through Purity, Purity through Faith.” In 1992 it began rounding up LGBT people and political dissidents, and sending them to resettlement camps. Dr. Delia Surridge agreed to conduct hormone research experiments on humans at Larkhill Resettlement Camp.

In Surridge’s diary she wrote: “Rita Boyd, the lesbian, died at tea-time. During the autopsy we found four tiny vestigial fingers forming within the calf of her leg.” (Issue #3) The only other mention of Rita Boyd comes in issue #6 when Valerie mentions in her autobiographical letter that Rita died two weeks previously.
