Ever since tearing itself away from Washington's grip in 1959, revolutionary Cuba has had a big impact on the world stage. And now a pathbreaking sexual revolution is writing a new chapter in the history of the Cuban revolution as the island's LGBTI community wins important rights and gains wider community acceptance. Author Rachel Evans discusses this exciting development and looks at barriers to full equality still to be overcome.

Speakers:
RACHEL EVANS, Author and Socialist Alliance member

GERALDINE BROOKS, Australia-Cuba Friendship society
