Chavela Vargas and Frida Kahlo had a great friendship for many years. Frida wrote Carlos Pellicer a letter referring to her new friend: "Today I met Chavela Vargas. Extraordinary, lesbian, it's more erotic to me. I do not know if she felt what I did. But I think she's a woman who is liberal enough that, if she asks me, I would not hesitate a second to undress before her. "
Chavela lived with the marriage of artists for a year, in the residence of Coyoacán. They never denied or accepted their romance, however, what they express from each other can give us an indication of their true relationship. Chavela Vargas told the newspaper La Jornada about Frida: "He taught me many things, and without showing off anything, I grabbed the sky with my hands, with every word, every morning!" #fridakahlo #kahlo #lesbian #loveislove #lovewins #artist #feminist #girlpower
