By special request, "Obsession" by Suzy Solidor in 1933.

Photos of lesbians or bisexual of the 1920s.
Claire Waldoff was a German singer. She was a famous cabaret singer and entertainer in Berlin during the 1910s and 1920s.
Yvonne George was a Belgian singer and feminist actress.Weakened by her the excesses of her lifestyle, George fell ill with tuberculosis. Following ineffective treatments, she died in a hotel room near the port of Genoa on the 16th of May 1930, aged 33.
Violette Morris was a decorated French athlete who won many French national championships. However, her sporting achievements have been overshadowed by the fact that she worked with the Gestapo during the war. She was killed in a Resistance-led ambush as a traitor to the French state.The youngest of six sisters, she spent her adolescence in a convent, L'Assomption de Huy. Although a lesbian from an early age, she married a man named Gouraud on August 22, 1914, before serving in World War I as a military nurse during the Battle of the Somme and a courier during the Battle of Verdun. She later divorced in May of 1923.Morris's lifestyle was quite different from the traditional role of women during the 1920s. In addition to her wide-ranging athletic activities, Morris deviated from traditional behaviors of the time in several other ways. Among other things, she smoked heavily, two to three packs of cigarettes per day, and swore often.
She was refused license renewal by the FFSF (French: Fédération française sportive féminine) (English: French Women's Athletic Federation) amid complaints of her lesbian lifestyle and was therefore barred from participating in the 1928 Summer Olympics. The agency cited her lack of morals, especially in light of the fact that one of her lovers, Raoul Paoli, made public her bisexual activities. Paoli had recently left Morris after she had initially decided to undergo an elective mastectomy in order to fit into racecars more easily. After 1928, Morris settled into owning a car parts store in Paris, and, along with her employees, building racecars.
