After decades of persecution and neglect, Cuba’s LGBT community finds itself in the midst of a new struggle—the fight for equality.
The leader of this uprising is Mariela Castro, charismatic daughter of President Raúl Castro and a member of Cuba’s National Assembly, who uses her passion and pedigree to promote acceptance in the face of prejudice.
Mariela Castro’s March: Cuba’s LGBT Revolution is the newest documentary on HBO. It follows Castro and her LGBT supporters as they spread their universal message of equality across the country.
Directed by Jon Alpert, the documentary spotlights gay, lesbian and trans activists through revealing stories of pain, love, strength and perseverance, all told against a rapidly changing social and political backdrop.
