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.

Our guest is Patricia Zamorano and I just want to say that I had sooo much fun during this interview. You will hear us giggling a lot like little girls because I really identified with this mujer as we had so many common experiences. I love to hear from women that grew up in the same neighborhoods that I did. What struck me most about Patricia was her candor and her transparency. She was very genuine and authentic in her interactions and her stories. I found her to be a courageous woman and I was awed by her life story that demonstrated a woman that continued to rise from adversity from growing up in boyle heights, working in construction as a woman and then becoming a playwright in her 40s and she was a woman open to taking detours in her life lead her to her passions. I asked her what makes her different and I think that her ability to bounce back from adversity makes her not only a survivor but a winner. You have to be able to remain curious and alert to where your life is going to take you even when it doesn’t go as planned. Patricia has a big beautiful smile, bright eyes and a personality that fills the room. I love stories that deviate from a tragic lesbian narrative and shows how queer women survive and thrive in the face of adversity. I hope that her story inspires you to stay curious about where your life will lead you and how following your passions will fill your heart. Gracias Patricia.
