LGBT Rights in Cuba: The right to be brutally beaten for being an unofficial gay activist

A shocking and disturbing image of how Cuba's LGBT activists are violently and brutally attacked when they refuse to subjugate their cause and themselves to the Castro dictatorship.

Via Capitol Hill Cubans:

Cuban LGBT Activist Nearly Beaten to Death

Last Thursday, Cuban LGBT rights activist, Mario Jose Delgado, was kidnapped by three men and savagely beaten.

As you can see from the picture below, he's lucky to be alive.

Delgado believes the three men were Cuban state security agents, who wanted to disrupt a gathering of the LGBT rights group he leads.

Moreover, he had just published an article in the magazine of the famed "Revista Hispano-Cubana," where he criticizes the racism and homophobia of the Castro regime.

The attackers took his cell phone and a USB flash drive he had on him, which contained all of the information regarding the upcoming gathering and its scheduled participants.

    Don't worry. Mariela can explain everything. Move along.

    I don't believe it for a minute! That has to be photoshopped. Mariela has assured us that these things don't happen anymore. Besides, she gave a chat at the New York Public Library that bastion of democracy. They wouldn't have invited her if Cuba was such a homophobic country.
