Derechos ya!

Articulo de la BBC sobre los derechos de los gays en la Isla de Cuba.

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.

There are limits: adoption is not included in the bill and neither is the word marriage.

“A lot of homosexual couples asked me to not risk delaying getting the law passed by insisting on the word marriage,” Mariela Castro said.

[…]

In the early days of the revolution many homosexuals were sent to forced labour camps for re-education and rehabilitation.

The camps did not last long but still gays were often denied certain jobs as “ideological deviants”.

In the 1980s, there were orchestrated mass rallies denouncing homosexuals.

[…]

“In the early years of the revolution much of the world was homophobic. It was the same here in Cuba and led to acts which I consider unjust,” said Mariela Castro.

“What I see now is that both Cuban society and the government have realised that these were mistakes. There is also the desire to take initiatives which would prevent such things happening again.”
