Now that the Obama administration has eased the travel embargo on Cuba, Americans will have their first real chance to explore the country’s rich LGBT community.
Capitalizing on the opportunity, this month the travel company Cuba Inspires has chartered what’s believed to be the first LGBT-centric tour to Cuba, timed to coincide with International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia and local Pride celebrations.
Candis Cayne is serving as the LGBT ambassador for the group, which will tour Havana May 10-16 and then move on to Matanza May 16-21. Page Six reports cameras for E!’s I am Cait will be filming during the excursion, which will include 100 members of America’s LGBT community.
Cayne will speak at a conference in Cuba alongside Mariela Castro, daughter of President Raúl Castro and the country’s de facto LGBT spokesperson.
