Cuban LGBT activists Wendy Iriepa and Ignacio Estrada Cepero meet with U.S. Rep. Ros-Lehtinen

Cuban LGBT activists Wendy Iriepa and Ignacio Estrada Cepero, visiting the United States for three months, on Wednesday met in Washington, D.C., with U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-Miami.

"I applaud the work that Wendy and Ignacio are doing to unveil the real story of Castro’s communist Cuba as they denounce the abuses committed by these thugs toward all the people in Cuba, including the LGBT community," Ros-Lehtinen said in a news release after the meeting. "Wendy and Ignacio are two courageous individuals who refuse to be silent against this repression, and will continue to stand up for human rights and dignity inside and outside of Cuba."

I have been to Cuba very recently, several times actually. The gay scene is pretty chill, I hear of more abuse here in the USA than over there,
