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.

This is the second part of our first episode where Leticia Alvarez a fellow Queer Latina is interviewing me, your Host Veronica. We continue to talk about the importance of paying attention to which organizations, products and companies support the Latinx LGBT community, we continue to talk about the practice of Queering space through seemingly simple actions like meeting queer friends in your own communities and we end with some ideas about challenges and opportunities in losing physical spaces like lesbian bars but at the same time, going online has helped us spread out through Los Angeles to diversify the events and experiences available to women.
