I received this Huffington Post article in my email while I was in Cuba. I visited for 10 days as a delegate with Witness for Peace. Interestingly, we visited the National Center for Sex Education in Havana at the time this interview was recorded and posted. Check it out and listen to the radio interview.
We were pleased to hear of the work of the organization and how Cuba is striving to end discrimination and homophobia. We heard the same information in more than one meeting – the government and the country and the party see no difference among people. There should be no discrimination. I hope that keeps going and growing.
Here’s my regular sign-off for my posts:
Immigration Equality, Out4Immigration and Love Exiles Foundation are the three groups working on our issue – and the three groups who receive whatever money comes in from sales of my book, Torn Apart: United by Love, Divided by Law, Findhorn Press, 2011.
My newer project, with David W. Ross, whose new film “I Do: The Movie” will be out in June 2012, is a portrait project of LGBT binational families, United by Love, Divided by Law Portrait Project. It expands the reach of my book and will keep adding portraits as we find couples and funds to add more. We will hold events to assist the work being done for our families by Lavi Soloway and Stop the Deportations – The DOMA Project. Check out the site at

Elizabeth Gilbert wrote the foreword to my book. She is an ally in our fight and has suffered from the immigration situation herself as part of a binational relationship. Though she and her boyfriend were able to marry, they know what the drill was and they advocate for LGBT binational families. We like that!
