29. Gays in Cuba have more right than gays in America. How's that?
Despite Latin American historical cultural machismo that oppresses women and persecutes LGBTs, Cuba's parliament is now considering a bill to recognize same sex marriages. Even the capitalist press has taken notice:

Mariela Castro speaks out for Cuba's gay minority
MARY LAMEY, The Gazette
Published: Saturday, July 29 2006

Mariela Castro preaches revolution, though not the kind her uncle Fidel has ever embraced.

As the head of Cuba's National Centre for Sexual Education, Castro is a vocal supporter of rights for lesbians, gays, bisexuals and the transgendered. That support brought her to Montreal yesterday, to speak at the International Conference on LGBT Human Rights, being held in conjunction with the First World Outgames.

Castro, 43, is the daughter of Raul Castro, Cuba's defence minister and the first in line to succeed 80-year-old dictator Fidel Castro, who has ruled the country for 50 years.
