Zarah Leander: Den queera divan

Rosenberg, Tiina LU (2007) In Tidskrift för genusvetenskap 1-2. p.68-91
Abstract
This article discusses the actress and singer Zarah Leander (1907-1981), one of the most celebrated female stars in German Nazi Cinema 1936-43. She is a contradictory figure, and her star persona has always been a negotiation of antagonistic formulations, thus pointing to modes of audience identification and specatorship issues, most strikingly articulated through her immense popularity in the post-war German and Swedish gay community.
