New Cuban leader Raul Castro's daughter Mariela is the head of the National Centre for Sex Education, and is trying to get new liberal sexuality laws passed in the country. "The proposed legislation would recognise same-sex unions, along with inheritance rights. It would also give transsexuals the right to free sex-change operations and allow them to switch the gender on their ID cards, with or without surgery," a BBC article said. If Cuba passes the legislation, it will be a great day for LGBT activists, and for personal freedom in general.
