Gay friendly church in Cuba has a close, powerful friend — a Castro

Images of Mariela Castro blessing LGBTI couples and wearing a Christian pastor's garment during a recent Havana event for gay rights caused consternation both on and off the island, particularly among religious circles. The images accompanied several reports from Cuba's official news media on the Metropolitan Community Church (MCC), founded with support of the National Center for Sex Education, known as Cenesex and headed by Castro. LGBTI stand for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex.
