LGBT terminology in Slavic languages
Show Notes

A new episode is finally here! Here, I explain the terminology used in Slavic languages in order to describe a gay person. This is a very sensitive topic and it´s not meant to offend anyone. I would also like to state that I won´t tolerate homophobic comments. Thank you!
