Gay civil rights issues are heard around the world, including Cuba. Free Havana paints a vivid picture of what it has been like to be gay in Cuba through the candid stories of six gay and lesbian individuals. From the Batista era to the Revolution to the Mariel Boatlift to present-day Cuba, Free Havana exposes the evolution of gay life from a time when homosexuality was considered a punishable crime to current efforts to promote a greater acceptance of freedom of sexual preference. Honest in approach and poignant in content, the stories of the six Cubans will inform and inspire as they touch your heart.


Reasons to Buy

  1. Get insight from six openly gay Cubans who speak candidly about life in their country and how it has changed over the years.
  2. Anyone who has seen Before Night Falls, or read the memoir by Reinaldo Arenas, knows that gay men living in Cuba used to have it really rough.
  3. In 2006, a shorter version of Free Havana became the first documentary of its kind to be screened at Havana's International Festival of New Latin Cinema, a milestone for gay cinema given the strict censorship in Cuba.
