About This Show
Hello everyone, this is me. You can call me La Shaguita. I'm a 29 year old San Francisco/Spain resident who fled from the closet in June 2013. Ironically, though, I still record in it. The LesbiHonest podcast chronicles my curiosities, insights, and explorations as a freshly-liberated lesbian. In my out of the closet adventures I hit the streets of the Bay Area and beyond (most recently, in Western Europe) to talk to other LGBTQ-minded folks about cool stuff that they're doing and thinking. So go ahead, push a play button or two. If you regret it, just pack up your u-haul and move on.

Lesbianism in Communist Prague
2 days ago
Meet Jana, a woman who has lived as a lesbian in Prague since communist times. When she first fell in love with a woman in 1965, homosexuality was still taboo in Czech society. Members of the LGBTQ community were often put under government surveillance and risked losing their homes and jobs. At the same time, there was a thriving underground party culture where Jana and her friends found relief from their day to day struggles. Join La Shaguita as she and Jana discuss what life was like for lesbians and gay people during these turbulent times. Jana will also describe her experiences during the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia and the uprisings that led to the fall of communism in 1989.
