Quote of the Day: LGBTs Should See Castros for What They Are

Sunday, November 2, 2014
I for one will not fall for the lies that this desperate dictatorship continues to spread. [I] really hope our LGBT community around the globe does their homework and sees the Castros for what they are, and not what they tell us they are. When Cubans have true freedom to vote, speak, travel and love — then we can talk about planning conferences and celebrating the successes of the island’s leadership. For now we simply mourn its victims and pray for actual rights — not blood-stained press releases and staged pictures.
-- Herb Sosa, president of the Unity Coalition, a Miami-based LGBT advocacy group, on Cuba's efforts to host the International Lesbian Gay Bisexual Trans and Intersex Association’s biennial global conference in 2016, The Washington Blade, 11/1/14
