Sarah Bernhardt ... scandalized and titillated Paris and the world by wearing pants, taking men's roles in some of her plays, and having numerous conspicuous love affairs, some with women ... Her lovers included Victor Hugo and the Prince of Wales ... she was more discreet about her lesbian affairs, and less is known about them. She also had a close twenty-year friendship with gay British playwright Oscar Wilde. At her request, he wrote his play Salome for her in 1892. (Photo: unknown date)
