Gay and Lesbian March in Havanna

People marched in Havana today as part of the events leading up to the International Day Against Homophobia. Debates and workshops were also held on topics such as gay marriage and gay/lesbian adoption. Gay marriage is not legal in Cuba, and more progress is obviously needed, but Cuba has come a long way from its earlier years on LGBTQ issues. Recently sex reassignment surgery for transsexual people has been covered by the free national health system.
