This is a BIG step backwards and a victory for Stalinism and the cahtolic cult.
Check out Cuba Gay Rights Documentray “Improper Conduct” which includes an interview of Reinaldo Arenas the cuban writer whose life was portrayed by Javier Bardem in Julina Schnabel’s film “Before Night Falls” where Bardem was nomimated for best actor. When human rights are beign trampled on for almost 50 years WE ALL should be speak out.
Improper Conduct “Mauvaise Conduite” 1984
Best Documentary Audience Award at the 1984 San Francisco International Lesbian & Gay Film Festival.
I have a different take on this supposed “gay pride parade” in Havana. It was a setup from start to finish orchestrated in Miami in an attempt to discredit positive changes in Cuba and thwart gay progress on the island.
There are gay celebrations in Havana regularly. There was a large official May 17 event around the International Day Against Homophobia (IDAHO), and a June 14, 2008 gay celebration at Mi Cayito Beach just east of Havana.

This site has photos and videos that prove big gay events actually happen in Cuba unlike the sham June 25 parade designed as a ruse by the Unity Coalition to attack island gays and their government.
