Hands-On Tour at The Rosenbach: 20th Century Lesbian and Gay Lives

Fri, January 11, 2019 3:00 P.M.
The Rosenbach | 2008 Delancey Place, Philadelphia, PA 19103

Discover the hidden histories of 20th century queer luminaries through their writings and artwork – both published and private. From Marlene Dietrich’s passionate letters to Mercedes de Acosta, to Jean Cocteau’s gloriously gay illustrations for Jean Genet’s Querelle, and an exquisitely explicit poem in Isadora Duncan’s handwriting, we will have a gay old time exploring the erotic imagination of 20th century lesbian and gay artists.
