Young expelled for being gay
Noticias/Cuba_Expulsan a joven por ser homosexual

HAVANA, Cuba, January 29 (Aini Martín Valero, ALAS / Cubanet/index) – A few days ago a young person was expelled from the ranks of the Communist Party of Cuba (PCC), for being a homosexual.

Leandro Alfonso Ramirez known as Leo was separated from the PCC group which was active in the municipality of Regla. The 32 years old Leo was always a revolutionary and hid his homosexuality from fear of retaliation.

Only a month ago he confessed to his co-workers to be gay, but revolutionary. Leo says he feels betrayed by everything that he defended. He believes that he has been deceived and that the ideals of the Cuban Communist Party are false.

The National Center for Sex Education in Cuba (CENESEX), under the leadership of Raúl Castro's daughter, Mariela Castro Espin, has undertaken for some years a crusade against homophobia and the rights of homosexuals.

According to a report in the newspaper El Nuevo Herald, Castro Espin is preparing a letter to the leadership of the CPC where she will solicit that the members of the LGTB community are not discriminated by the Party.
HAVANA (Reuters) January 19, 2010 - Cuban President Raul Castro's daughter accused the ruling Communist Party on Tuesday of discrimination against gays and said she will write a letter to its "top leadership" demanding that it end.
The poor guy believed that because of what she said, it will be safe to come out of the closet. He did and sure enough he was expelled from the ranks of the Communist Party. Who do Cuba's Communists "include"? The new men; fanatics, liars, homophobic, assassins and failed men, reaching the total realization of being like Che.

Communists absolutely fear originality. I've talked to many of them, as the political debate site I was a member of before DP was very international and very liberal. I was also part of one that catered to socialists and communists.

They abhor people who are not of themselves completely in thought and belief. They have to. Communists can't organize with anyone who has independent thought.

In Cuba for the last 51 years has been in existent a one-party totalitarian dictatorship which can be define as Castro- chauvinistic. Homosexuals, under this system of government, are marginalized, discriminated and persecuted because they do not "conform" to the "ideal" and "socialist aspirations" to produce a "new man". In other words robots to the total and exclusive service of the state without their own will, tireless cheering Fidel, Raul, and the failed "accomplishments" of the system.
