Latina LesBi y Que Podcast

The Latina LesBi y Que! (as in Lesbian, Bisexual & Queer) Podcast was born from the Latina Lesbian & Bisexual Amigas Meet up in Los Angeles. The LLBA Meet up has a membership of over 700 women that meet up through various events to build community and create friendships between women who love women. The LatinaLesBi y Que Podcast captures the stories of the lives of Lesbian, Bisexual and Queer Latinas. This podcast is sexy, fun and very smart with topics that appeal to the diverse lives of Latina women who love women. 

Veronica is the host of the podcast and organizer of the Meet up. She is a mental health professional who works with women in a small psychotherapy private practice and she is a professor at a local University. She is also the organizer of the largest Latina Lesbian, Bi and Queer women’s meet up in Los Angeles. She is a smart woman who likes to have fun, is very opinionated and believes in building community. Veronica knows that Latinas have a valuable perspective and she captures that experience through interviews with Amigas from the Meet up that cover topics like Amor & Dating, Building lesbian community, Financial & legal topics for lesbians and Mental health & health topics for LesBi & Queer women.

I talk about looking for women that look like me, sound like me and like some one like me. This is important because cultural connections and matter and empower. However this group is also inclusive of those who are not Latina but want to meet and commune with other latinas. We have Asian, African American, White and European women who have joined and participate in our meetups. Our community is welcoming to all queer women who want to build with us.

For more information about the concept of "Queering Space" and "Queering the map" as we lose physical space but cover more ground as we go online.
6. I use LATINX and Latina/o interchangeably. Latinx has been popularized recently and I am trying to incorporate the use of this term into my vocabulary but I also love using the gendered LATINA identifier because I can only speak to this experience as a cisgendered Latina/Chicana. I will pass the "mic" to other expert voices in the future to discuss the latina transgender experience.
