Thank you Ileana for your bravery. I group up in a conservative Cuban family so understand & relate all to well with the challenges that that complex community poses to us every day. My life partner and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts and pray that we may have equal rights one day just like heterosexual couples. Thank you thank you.
