Castro regime agents beat down and arrest Gay activists at Pride Parade in Havana cubanexilequarter.blogspot.com/2019/05/castro… 1/12 #PrideMonth
On Saturday, May 11, 2019 the Castro regime's efforts at Pinkwashing its totalitarian edifice came crashing down as gay rights activists were beaten down, arrested and taken away for carrying out a Gay Pride march in Havana. cubanexilequarter.blogspot.com/2019/05/castro… 2/12 #PrideMonth
It is important to recall that there is a deep-seated homophobia at the heart of communist ideology that viewed it as a symptom of bourgeois or capitalist contamination. cubanexilequarter.blogspot.com/2019/05/castro… 3/12
On March 13, 1963 Fidel Castro openly attacked “long-haired layabouts, the children of bourgeois families,” wearing “trousers that are too tight,” who took “their licentious behavior to the extreme” of organizing “effeminate shows” in public places. cubanexilequarter.blogspot.com/2019/05/castro… 4/12
The Cuban dictator warned: “They should not confuse the Revolution’s serenity and tranquility with weaknesses in the Revolution. Our society cannot accept these degeneracies.” cubanexilequarter.blogspot.com/2019/05/castro… 5/12 #PrideMonth #Cuba
In 1964 Cuba began rounding up Gays & sending them to Military Units to Aid Production. These forced labor camps were for those suspected of or found guilty of "improper conduct." Persons with effeminate mannerisms were taken to the camps. cubanexilequarter.blogspot.com/2019/05/castro… 6/12
April 11th marked the 35th anniversary of the release of Improper Conduct, the film that exposed communist intolerance to Gays and Lesbians in Cuba, and documents what happened during the first 30 years of the Castro regime. cubanexilequarter.blogspot.com/2019/05/castro… 7/12
One month later and the relevance of this film was seen in the streets of Havana, Cuba. cubanexilequarter.blogspot.com/2019/05/castro… 8/12 #PrideMonth
Reports emerged on May 7, 2019 that the state-run Center for Sex Education, headed by Mariela Castro, said in a Facebook post that the Conga Against Homophobia scheduled for some time in May had been canceled on orders of the Ministry of Health. cubanexilequarter.blogspot.com/2019/05/castro… 9/12
Gay rights activists condemned the cancellation and then organized their own demonstration. On Saturday, more than 100 demonstrators took to the streets of Havana. cubanexilequarter.blogspot.com/2019/05/castro… 10/12 #PrideMonth
After setting out on Havana's Paseo del Prado, the marchers came up against a large number of police and state security forces. Beatings, detentions and several arrests ensued.cubanexilequarter.blogspot.com/2019/05/castro… 11/12 #PrideMonth
This would be a good time to invite friends that do not know the Castro regime's history on Gays to see Improper Conduct. cubanexilequarter.blogspot.com/2019/05/castro… 12/12 #PrideMonth
