For the 11th year, Cuba's National Center of Sexual Education spearheaded activities to celebrate the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia. On May 12, several thousand participants, including a group from the San Francisco-based Rainbow World Fund, joined in Havana for a short but spirited march. Above, the Cuban flag was carried in the march. Havana activities were augmented by the free distribution of thousands of rainbow-colored items - flags, bracelets, stickers - from the Rainbows for Cuba project, initiated by gay San Francisco activist Michael Petrelis, who was also there for the march decked out in a rainbow cape.
