During a dialogue where Raul Castro’s daughter was present, members of the Cuban LGTBQ community were told the now-canceled gay parade would be used by foreign forces as the perfect scenario for their own agenda. Wednesday’s meeting was attended by a handful of concerned Cuban citizens who by way of a social media chat organized themselves and headed to the Ministry of Health in Havana’s Vedado neighborhood. Mariela Castro was at the meeting. She is the daughter of Communist Party Secretary and former President Raul Castro and heads the country’s National Center for Sex Education (CENESEX), a state-run organization in charge of gay issues and at the forefront of the ongoing pride activities including the parade. Organized groups could attack members of the LGBT community forcing police to act and create negative images around the world. That was one of the reasons organizers told the small group Saturday’s gay parade had been canceled Tuesday.
