Cuba's LGBT Revolution on Monday, November 28.
Directed by Jon Alpert (Baghdad ER),
the documentary follows Mariela Castro, the daughter of President
Raul Castro and a member of Cuba's National Assembly, as she calls
for greater rights for members of the LGBT community.
“[T]he documentary spotlights gay,
lesbian, and trans activists through revealing stories of pain, love,
strength and perseverance, all told against a rapidly changing social
and political backdrop,” the film's description reads in part.
The documentary follows Castro as she
and other activists prepare for a celebratory Gala Against Homophobia
In 2012, Castro introduced a proposal
to legalize civil unions for gay and lesbian couples, saying that her
measure would provide “options” for gay couples similar to those
available to straight couples.
