Frida Kahlo.

The other woman in this photo is Chavela Vargas, an influential ranchera singer-songwriter. Though she didn’t “officially” come out as a lesbian until late in life, she was well-known for dressing in men’s clothing and not changing lyrics/pronouns when performing songs traditionally sung by men. She and Frida are alleged to have had a relationship.
