Lesbians in Cuba

This link leads to a short audio clip about the experience of lesbians in Cuba after the Revolution in 1959, when being gay was considered counter-revolutionary.

Other stuff:
Reinaldo Arenas (1943-1990) was a Cuban poet, novelist and playwright who, despite his early sympathy for Fidel Castro and the 1959 revolution, grew critical of and then rebelled against the Cuban government. By 1967, his writings and openly gay lifestyle were bringing him into conflict with the Communist government.
