A milestone!

Hopefully, when the oppressive Communist government of Cuba finally topples, lgbt rights will be able to flourish. Unfortunately, homophobia is entrenched in many cultures, including those in the Caribbean and Latin America, and it will take a lot of social education to overcome that no matter what political changes occur.

Why everytime there is a news on lgbt in Latin America there is something mentioning how homophobic "those cultures" are, being so diverse?
Stereotyping, anyone?

KP

Good point @ Alberto. I don't want to imply that Latin American cultures are necessarily more homophobic than many others. There's certainly plenty in North Atlantic cultures (North America and Europe), and others, as well.
I had hoped that my statement in the previous post "Unfortunately, homophobia is entrenched in many cultures, including those in the Caribbean and Latin America", would sufficiently qualify that I didn't mean to single out Latin American in that way.
