Gay Families to Gain Recognition in Cuba?

So Latin America, a staunchly Catholic part of the World, is making more progress on LGBT equality than the “Land of the Free”? Good times. From Edge on the Net:

Cuba’s detractors point to the island nation’s socialist government and declare that Cubans live under freedom-killing tyranny. But gay and lesbian families there may be on the brink of achieving a kind of freedom that not all of their American counterparts enjoy: Legal recognition, and with it better means to protect and provide for their families.

CNN reported in a July 29 article that the Cuban government, spurred on by efforts by Raul Castro’s daughter Mariela, who has tirelessly worked for reform in Cuba for the sake of GLBTs there, is contemplating civil unions.



Originally from Denver, now living in the Low Countries of Europe. Spent four years in the Navy, got out when I realized I was a big ole flaming mo. Lived in NYC for almost a decade until meeting my husband, who because of the f'ed up immigration laws, can't stay in the US. I'm obsessed with politics and LGBT activism. I cannot stand or abide ANY form of religious stupidity or bigotry....oh, or republicans.
