Cleve Jones LGBTQ Trip To Cuba

By Charlotte Robinson, April 01, 2019
Rainbow World Fund has been visiting Cuba since 2012 & Cleve Jones LGBTQ Icon Activist & Founder of the Memorial AIDS Quilt will be joining them on their humanitarian trip from May 8th to 18th. Jones has been invited to Cuba by Dr. Mariela Castro Espin to receive the CENESEX (Cuban National Center for Sex Education) Prize in recognition of his contributions to the LGBTQ movement. Jones stated, “I've always wanted to go to Cuba & it's a good time to see what life is like for LGBT people & for people, like myself, who are living with HIV." During this fabulous journey you’ll learn from the Cubans about the realities of their country including visiting projects that serve the Cuban people & meet with members of the LGBTQ community, church leadership, artists & leaders in many fields. You will gain insight into the struggles & hopes of the Cuban people & visit places such as medical clinics, programs that serve the elderly, art institutions, schools & other historical & cultural sights. The many highlights include participating in the LGBTQ Pride celebrations in Havana. To be part of this once in a lifetime experience the trip cost is $2,800 & includes a Cuba travel visa (required), all hotels & accommodations, in-country transportation by private van, all meals (except one), all tips/gratuities, translation & guide services, speakers fees, entrance fees to special events. It does not include round trip air transportation from the USA. Flights are available from several US airports to Havana. We talked to fierce LGBT ally Jon Alpert about his HBO documentary “Mariela Castro’s March: Cuba’s LGBT Revolution” in November of 2016. LISTEN
