Dietrich defied conventional gender roles - dressing in a top hat and tails to perform 'male' songs, boxing at Sabri Mahir's boxing studio and attending Berlins' drag balls. In 1930, Dietrich starred in 'Morocco' a movie where her character, a cabaret singer kisses another woman whilst dressed in a mans tuxedo.
