Cuba Pushes Gay Rights, but Rum-Soaked Despair Lingersnew

Four decades after gays were sent to forced labor camps, and two decades after people with AIDS were forcibly hospitalized, the country recently celebrated its second international day against homophobia.

Cubans are more overtly cranky than on my last trip a few years back, none more so than the young gay guys on the Malecon.
