Synopsis

"Gay Cuba takes a candid look at one of Cuba's most controversial human rights issues: the treatment of gay and lesbian people since the Cuban Revolution of 1959. This one hour documentary takes the viewer through three decades of conflict and transformation, providing insight into Cuban culture and society rarely seen. With a dynamic cast of characters, including a radio show host, a union leader, a drag queen and a musician, Gay Cuba takes us through the personal experiences of family, society, political institutions and culture. Gay and lesbian Cubans tell their stories of police harassment and gay-positive psychologists, accounts of expulsion from political organizations and election to political leadership. Gay Cuba demonstrates the sometimes contradictory and always changing reality in a society that considers itself to be "in the 36th year of Revolution."
