2008-2010 Delancey Pl, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19103
| 1 hour | Walking | The Rosenbach

| Discover the hidden histories of lesbian and gay literary figures through their writings and artwork--both published and private. From Oscar Wilde's tumultuous relationships with illustrator Aubrey Beardsley and poet/translator Lord Alfred Douglas, to the open secret of writer Mercedes de Acosta's entanglements with Marlene Dietrich and Greta Garbo, the constellations of friends and lovers around these provocateurs shed light on the lives of queer artists in their respective eras.

| Offered almost every Friday at 3:00 p.m., Hands-On Tours allow visitors unparalleled access to rare and important items that are not usually on view to the public. Advance registration is strongly recommended, as there are a limited number of spots on each tour; tours without registrants 48 hours in advance will be cancelled.

| Tours meet in the Rosenbach lobby promptly at 3pm. | rosenbach.org
