More Gay Rights in Cuba than in USA?

There is a Castro who is fighting to introduce radical changes in Cuba. It is Raúl Castro’s daughter, Mariela Castro. As head of the government-funded National Centre for Sex Education, she is trying to change people’s attitudes towards minority groups in the community. She is currently attempting to get the Cuban National Assembly to adopt what would be among the most liberal gay and transsexual rights law in Latin America. The proposed legislation would recognise same-sex unions, along with inheritance rights. It would also give transsexuals the right to free sex-change operations and allow them to switch the gender on their ID cards, with or without surgery.

    If you like correspond in german: no problem.

  2. If that is true then Cuba will be doing a 180 degree turn on that subject. Many here in South Florida hope that Raul Castro brings more liberty to that country. Today he made it legal for citizens to have cell phones. The jump from cell phones to gay rights is a big one though.

  3. I have been to Cuba and know many Cubans. Fidel declared that the greatest natural resource that Cuba has is the people. This is true. I am not surprised that Cuba is doing this. Let's hope it stays a valuable Communist country after Fidel and continues to resist the Evil USA and the terrorists the the USA permits. Never forget that the United States still protects terrorists in Florida. They should be delivered to Cuba to face the justice they deserve.

  4. More gay rights in Cuba than USA? Certainly not yet; this is a proposal. They don't even allow gay bars in Cuba, according to the BBC. And what about all the other human rights and political rights denied Cubans? The right to form a political orgnization that opposes the communist party? I hear that they may let their citizens have computers someday!

  5. Sounds like Mariela Castro is someone we should care for and keep informed about, i.e., put her in your Google News Alerts. That is a very easy thing to do. Just Google Mariela Castro then select News and down at the bottom of that page you are asked if you wish news alerts. You enter your email address. You will get an email asking for a confirmation. You say yes and then whatever comes up in the world press you will know.

    There are possiblities of new alternatives to American Imperialism taking hold in Latin America and prospering for us all.

    Electronic hardware was forbidden for a while becaue they just hadn't enough electricity thanks to the USA. But they decentralised the electrical power supply and now people can have as much computers, TVs, cellphones etc. as they want again.

    By the way: Cuba invests more money in education and health care than any other country in latin america.

    1. Just curious, what on Earth did the US have to do with Cuba’s electric power, pro or con?
