Cuba IDAHO Report 2012


Cuba’s first daughter Mariela Castro led a gay rights marched in Havana to mark IDAHO. During the parade, she hinted that Cuba would soon legalize same-sex unions.

The main IDAHO activities were held in Havana and Cien Fuegos in partnership with the Ministry of Superior Education in an attempt to address sexual education and the promotion of sexual health and rights in all of the country’s universities.
In addition, an extensive program of events was held with participation from storytellers, artists, painters, film and video makers, researchers, musicians and experts in the arts with the aim of promoting LGBTI equality in Cuba. It included the launch of an anthology of lesbian stories entitled “Us Two”, as well as a panel on homoerotism and the screening of videos, photographs and films about sexual diversity.
