Élisabeth de Gramont (April 23, 1875 – December 6, 1954)

Natalie Clifford Barney was a bilingual American playwright, poet and novelist who lived as an expatriate in Paris and ran a salon there for nearly fifty years, attracting the avant-garde of Modernism. She was the wealthy heiress of a railroad fortune. Élisabeth, Duchess of Clermont-Tonnerre, was a French writer, a descendant of Henry IV of France; when she was a child, according to Janet Flanner, "peasants on her farm begged her not to clean her shoes before entering their houses". They became lovers on May 1, 1910, a date that became their anniversary. In 1918, the two filed an "unofficial" but to them, binding "marriage contract": "After nine years of life together, joys and worries shared, and affairs confessed. For the survival of the bond, that we believe-and wish to believe-is unbreakable, since at its lowest level of reciprocal emotionalism that is the conclusion reached. The union, sorely tried by the passing years, failed doubly the faithfulness test in its sixth year, showing us that adultery is inevitable in these relationships where there is no prejudice, no religion other than feelings, no laws other than desire, incapable of vain sacrifices that seem to be the negation of life...“ Barney wrote in French about women’s same-sex desire and she was openly lesbian.

George Platt Lynes (April 15, 1907 – December 6, 1955)

Glenway Wescott was an American novelist and an important figure in the American expatriate literary community in Paris during the 1920s. Upon receiving a small printing press as a gift from his father, Monroe Wheeler began producing chapbooks of poetry under the imprint, Manikin Press. One of his first works was The Bitterns, a collection of poems by Wescott, whom he had met at the University of Chicago in 1919 and who would become Wheeler's long-time companion. 1927 brought a new challenge to their pairing: George Platt Lynes fell passionately in love with the strikingly good-looking Wheeler. Wheeler, for his part, was entranced by Lynes's "full, luscious mouth and his wasp like waist." The ménage a trois ended in February 1943 when Lynes moved out of the apartment that the three men shared, thus bringing to a close one of the longer chapters that supplemented the sixty-plus years relationship between Wescott and Wheeler. Lynes would eventually succumb to cancer in 1955 at the age of 48. Wheeler died in 1988 at the age of 89, 18 months after the death of Wescott.

Henriette Bosmans (December 6, 1895 – July 2, 1952)

Frieda Belinfante was a Dutch cellist, conductor, a prominent lesbian and a member of the Dutch Resistance during World War II. After the war, Belinfante immigrated to the United States and continued her career in music. She was the founding artistic director and conductor of the Orange County Philharmonic. Her repertoire spanned all periods and media including works from the Baroque to contemporary living composers of the period, especially those working in the Netherlands and France and in particular her close association with Dutch composer Henriëtte Bosmans. Bosmans, a well-known composer and pianist, was the partner of Belinfante for seven years. She lived together with Belinfante, who was in love with her, and led a bohemian life. Frieda’s instrument had a central part in Bosmans’ early works. In 1921, she wrote the Trio for piano, violin and cello and in 1926 Impressions for cello and piano. Frieda performed the premiere of the Second Cello Concerto (1923), still marked by the broad lyrical lines of Romanticism. Things changed after Henriëtte met Willem Pijper, a respected composer and critic. The 1928 Concertino for piano and orchestra is a good example of this new direction.

December 6, 1895: born.

July 2, 1952: died. Buried at Begraafplaats Zorgvlied, Amsteldijk 273, 1079 LL Amsterdam, Paesi Bassi

Hugues Cuénod (June 26, 1902 – December 6, 2010)

Hugues-Adhémar Cuénod was a Swiss singer known for his performances in international opera, operetta, both traditional and musical theatre, and on the concert stage, where he was particularly known for his light, romantic and expressive interpretation of mélodie (French art song). He had an extraordinarily long career of over 64 years: he gave his first concert in 1928 and his last in 1992 when he was aged 90, hence breaking the record for the longest career as a professional vocalist. Cuénod resided with his life partner, Alfred Augustin (41 years his junior), in the Vaud region of Switzerland. They lived in Le Château de Lully, an 18th century castle that belonged to his ancestors. In June 2007, when Cuénod was 105 ("It was a logical decision at this age"), he and Augustin, who was at the time his companion for the past 25 years, entered into a civil union after changes in Swiss law gave same-sex couples many of the legal benefits of marriage. He turned 108 on June 26, 2010 and died in Vevey on the following December 6, 2010.

Timeline & Places:

June 26, 1902: born.

Lillie Rose Ernst (September 14, 1870 – December 6, 1943)

Lillie Rose Ernst (September 14, 1870 – December 6, 1943) was an American educator. She was the mentor of the Potters, an informal group of women artists in early 20th-century St. Louis, Missouri, and the first woman to became assistant superintendent of instruction in the St. Louis public school system. Ernst was a mentor for The Potters, an informal group of women artists aged late teens to early twenties, who published a monthly artistic and literary magazine called The Potter's Wheel between 1904 and 1907. The same Potters described themselves as "idolatrous females worshipping a yellow-haired Amazon"; they called their mentor Ernst a "blond brute...the star of our existence." She was close to Leonora Halsted, author and fellow member of the Humanity Club, who, dying in 1929, left $20,000 to Ernst in "appreciation of her devoted care ... and my abiding love". For this reason, Ernst created the Leonora B. Halsted Scholarship for students in need at Washington University.

Lynn Fontanne (December 6, 1887 – July 30, 1983)

Lynn Fontanne was a British-born American-based actress and major stage star. Alfred Lunt was an American stage director and actor, often identified for a long-time professional partnership with his wife, Lynn Fontanne. It has been said that Fontanne was lesbian and Lunt gay. Broadway's Lunt-Fontanne Theatre was named for them. Secure in their public image as a happily married couple, they could play adulterers, as in Robert Sherwood's Reunion in Vienna, or as part of a ménage a trois in Noël Coward's Design for Living. In fact, Design for Living, written for the Lunts, was so risqué, with its theme of bisexuality and a ménage à trois, that Coward premiered it in New York, knowing that it would not survive the censor in London. The Lunts appeared together in more than twenty plays. The couple made one film together (The Guardsman; 1931), starred in several radio dramas for the Theatre Guild in the 1940s and starred in a few television productions in the 1950s and 1960s. They are buried next to each other at the Forest Home Cemetery in Milwaukee.

May 5, 1958: Globe Theatre is renamed Lunt-Fontanne Theatre, 205 W 46th St, New York, NY 10036, Stati Uniti

July 30, 1983: died. Buried at Forest Home Cemetery, 2405 W Forest Home Ave, Milwaukee, WI 53215, Stati Uniti. Buried alongside Alfred Lunt (August 12, 1892 – August 3, 1977).

Osbert Sitwell (December 6, 1892 - May 4, 1969)

Sir Francis Osbert Sacheverell Sitwell, 5th Baronet, was an English writer. His elder sister was Dame Edith Sitwell and his younger brother was Sir Sacheverell Sitwell; like them, he devoted his life to art and literature. Together with his brother, he sponsored a controversial exhibition of works by Matisse, Utrillo, Picasso and Modigliani. The composer William Walton also greatly benefited from his largesse and Walton's cantata Belshazzar's Feast was written to Sitwell's libretto. He published two books of poems: Argonaut and Juggernaut (1919) and At the House of Mrs. Kinfoot (1921). In the mid-1920s, he met David Horner who was his lover and companion for most of his life. Sitwell suffered from Parkinson's disease from the 1950s; by the mid-1960s, this condition had become so severe that he needed to abandon writing. He died on May 4, 1969 in Italy, at Montegufoni, a castle near Florence, which his father had bought derelict in 1909 and restored as his personal residence. The castle was left to his nephew, Reresby; most of his money was left to Horner. Sir Sitwell received many awards in the 1950s and in 1962 completed a postscript to his autobiographies Tales my Father Taught Me.

Robert Fizdale (April 12, 1920 – December 6, 1995)

Arthur Gold and Robert Fizdale were an American two-piano ensemble. Gold and Fizdale met during their student years at the Juilliard School. In 1944, the pianists formed a duo that survived until their retirement in 1982, based around their common interests of music, travel and cooking. It has often been said that Gold and Fizdale revolutionized the art of performing as a two-piano duo. They did commission and première many of the most important works for two-piano ensemble in the second half of the 20th century, including works by John Cage (A Book of Music (1944) which is one of Cage's earliest experiments in using the prepared Piano), Paul Bowles, Virgil Thomson, Ned Rorem and many other important American Composers. They were fixtures in New York's artistic community, being friends with literary and cultural figures such as Truman Capote, James Schuyler, George Balanchine, Jerome Robbins, among others. In 1984 they published The Gold and Fizdale Cookbook, which is dedicated to their friend George Balanchine, "In whose kitchen we spent many happy hours...“ They are buried together at Oakland Cemetery, Sag Harbor, New York.

Sylvia Townsend Warner (December 6, 1893 – May 1, 1978)

Valentine Ackland was an English poet, an important figure in the emergence of modernism in 20th century British poetry. In 1925 at the age of 19, she married Richard Turpin, a homosexual who was unable to consummate their marriage. In less than a year, she had her marriage to Turpin annulled and never returned to a serious relationship with a man. Sylvia Townsend Warner was an English novelist and poet. Warner was friendly with a number of the "Bright Young People" of the 1920s. In 1923, she met T. F. Powys, whose writing influenced her own and whose work she in turn encouraged. It was at Powys' home that Warner, in 1930, first met Valentine Ackland; the two women fell in love and settled at Frome Vauchurch, Dorset. They had a lifelong relationship, albeit tumultuous at times given Ackland's increasing alcoholism and infidelities. Warner was 12 years older than Ackland, and the two lived together until Ackland’s death from breast cancer in 1969. Selected letters between the two have been published: Wendy Mulford edited This Narrow Place in 1988, and ten years later Susanna Pinney published another selection, Jealousy in Connecticut. They are buried together at St Nicholas Churchyard, Chaldon Herring, Dorset, England.

Wally Cox (December 6, 1924 – February 15, 1973)

Mousy TV actor Wally Cox and his longtime roommate, the brooding Marlon Brando, were definitely one of New York’s oddest couples. Brando and Cox met when they were 9 years old. As adults, they were weight-lifting partners, and the diminutive Cox was rumored to be well built in a number of important ways. There was a widely disseminated photograph of the two men engaged in a sex act, but it may have been intentionally posed in order to provoke controversy. Though married many times and the father of many children, perhaps Brando’s longest relationship was with Cox. The two shared an apartment, and after Cox’s death in 1973, Brando rushed back to the US from Tahiti to procure his friend’s ashes. He did so telling Cox’s wife he was to scatter them on a place they used to go climbing. Instead, he kept Cox’s remains at home, and sometime even under the passenger sit in his car, often talking to the urn as if it were his still-living friend. After Brando’s own death and cremation in 2004, their ashes along with those of another longtime friend, Sam Gilman, were scattered together in Tahiti and Death Valley.

Timeline & Places:

December 6, 1924: born.

1940s: attended Denby High School, 12800 Kelly Rd, Detroit, MI 48224, Stati Uniti

1948: lived at 53 E 57th St, New York, NY 10022, Stati Uniti, sharing with Marlon Brando

February 15, 1973: died. Ashes mingled with those of Marlon Brando and Sam Gilman and scattered in Death Valley and Tahiti

William II of the Netherlands (December 6, 1792 - March 17, 1849)

William II (Willem Frederik George Lodewijk, anglicized as William Frederick George Louis; 6 December 1792 – 17 March 1849) was King of the Netherlands, Grand Duke of Luxembourg, and Duke of Limburg. William II had a string of relationships with both men and women which led him to be blackmailed. The homosexual relationships that William II had as crown prince and as king were reported by journalist Eillert Meeter. The king surrounded himself with male servants whom he could not dismiss because of his 'abominable motive' for hiring them in the first place.

Timeline & Places:
• December 6, 1792: born
• 1800s: attended University of Oxford, Oxford OX1 2JD, Regno Unito
• March 17, 1849: died. Buried at Nieuwe Kerk, Markt 80, 2611 GW Delft, Paesi Bassi
