The LGBT Cuban Revolution offers a comprehensive chronology of the LGBT rights movement in Cuba, highlighting the significant milestones, setbacks, and triumphs of this long and arduous journey. It also provides a detailed analysis of the social, cultural, and political factors that have influenced the course of this struggle, giving readers a nuanced understanding of the complexities of the fight for equality. This groundbreaking book contains never-before-seen photos and testimonials from LGBT individuals detained in the UMAPs and reveals the heroes who have brought about change. The LGBT Cuban Revolution is a powerful testament to the courage and determination of those who have fought for their rights in the face of adversity and a reminder that the struggle for equality is a dance where each step propels the next revolution.
