As Rosa “from Spain” would say, Cuba is living a celebration in terms of LGTBIQ+ rights, and at The Queer Travel they have decided to celebrate it with a group trip to Havana to discover the most queer side of the island and the new Telégrafo Axel Hotel. The package, which includes viewing the Eurovision final with Kika Lorace, promises to be an iconic experience.
The Queer Travel, a travel agency specialized in experiences for the LGTBIQ+ collective, has prepared a wonderful tour of Cuba with a stay at the Telégrafo Axel Hotel La Habana, our new hotel in the heart of Old Havana whose atmosphere is perfect to enjoy the flavor unique in the country following our hetero-friendly philosophy.
The outing, scheduled for May 7, 2023, will last nine days and will include, among other surprises, drag shows, three nights of disconnection at a five-star resort in Varadero, and the viewing of Eurovision Song Contest grand finale. And all this accompanied by witty comments from Kika Lorace, one of the most popular drag queens in Spain… We can’t think of a better way to celebrate the (future) triumph of Blanca Paloma!
Oh, and by the way: if you use the code AXELCUBA when booking, you get a €100 discount. Ea, ea!
The best time to travel to Cuba being LGTBIQ+
Cuba is experiencing a historic openness towards the collective. After the popular consultation that was held at the end of September, not only is equal marriage allowed, but Cuba is also contemplating the adoption of children by same-sex couples, the regulation of solidarity surrogacy and the prohibition of marriage childish.
After the cruel and fervent persecution of homosexual people during the Cuban revolution, relations between people of the same sex were decriminalized in the country in 1979. Currently, Mariela Castro, director of the National Center for Sexual Education (CENESEX) and niece of Fidel Castro, is one of the leaders of the movement for LGTBIQ+ rights on the island.
And thanks in part to his critical voice, last September the Cuban population was finally able to speak out and vote in favor of a modification of the Family Code (CEN), a legal package that includes, among other aspects, homosexual marriage and surrogacy.
The approval of such a modification has meant an activation of LGTBIQ+ tourism in Cuba, which is thus advancing by leaps and bounds towards an inclusion that once seemed utopian and that now The Queer Travel wants to celebrate in style with this dream plan. Are you going to miss it?
