  1. The majority of the civilised world really does appear to be moving towards an acceptance that gay rights equal human rights. We must all keep up the fight while there is this changed attitude.

    I watched a lengthy report on this over the weekend in a television new broadcast (I’m currently at my home in Spain); although I’m no lover of “socialism” it does seem that Cuba is making remarkable progress toward gay rights, even if there is much more to do.

  3. “Slow moves towards equal marriage are taking place in South America…”

    Not as slow as in the UK !

    MARIELA CASTRO HAS YET CONDUCTED AN INDEPENDENT AND IMPARTIAL (meaning not just her’s) INVESTIGATION ON THE U.M.A.P. CONCENTRATION CAMPS IN CUBA DURING THE EARLY 1960’S!! THE TARGET FOR THESE “RE-EDUCATION” CAMPS WERE MOSTLY GAY MEN! SHAME ON HER AND THOSE WHO “SUPPORT” HER!

    GAY RIGHTS GO ALONG WITH HUMAN RIGHTS, MARIELA CASTRO!

    ALJAZEERA VIDEO: Cuba dissidents Ladies in White – After 53 years of revolution, Cubans ar increasingly exasperated by the restrictions imposed on them by the country’s change-averse communist regime. In spite of, or perhaps because of, recent modest economic reforms, activism is growing as the government’s opponents overcome their fear of arrest and take to the streets. But it is not easy. Today, even the church based Ladies in White — a group of women relatives of imprisoned activists – say they are routinely spied on and arrested. Nevertheless, inspired by the Arab Spring, the Ladies are determined to keep up their protests, sensing that the regime’s grip on power is fading and that sooner rather than later it will be forced to give way.
