Looking for a Space [electronic resource]: Lesbians & Gay Men in Cuba = Buscando Un Espacio : Los Homosexuales En Cuba

Loading...
One of the ironies of the Cuban Revolution was that, from the beginning, it persecuted many of its loyal supporters because of their sexual orientation. "Looking for a Space" examines the cultural, political and historical reasons behind the persecution of lesbians and gay men during the early years of the Revolution, and takes a fresh look at this issue from the perspectives of Cubans who are living on the island today. We meet a diverse group of people, from a wide range of age groups and occupations, who express differences of opinion. Older people recall the repression of the late sixties when gay people were sent to "UMAP" camps for "re-education." During the Mariel boatlift of 1980, many gay people were seen as "counterrevolutionary" for fleeing the country. Many younger Cubans [...]

A New Cuban Crisis [electronic resource]

Loading...
On February 24, 1996 three American planes took off from Miami to search for Cuban rafters fleeing the Castro regime. Over Cuban airspace, two planes were shot down and four Americans died.

The Ochoa Affair: A Cuban Military Idol Toppled

Loading...
Arnando Ochoa was a revered military commander in Cuba, leader of 50,000 troops who triumphed in Angola, and a staunch supporter of Fidel Castro. In June of 1989 he was arrested by Raul Castro and put on trial for drug trafficking, negligence of duty, and misappropriation of hard currency. The country was rocked by the televised show trial.
