"The tyrannical regime in Cuba likes to fool those who are easily fooled but, unless there are human rights for all, there can be no true rights just for gays. One would have to be quite gullible to give any credence to reports that the non-freely elected sham of a parliament has passed an non-discrimination law regarding individuals who are LGBT. The Castro regime allows no freedom but it knows how to sugar coat its horrid human rights record by promoting a law that will never mean a thing. The Cuban people deserve freedom, whether they are gay or straight. Liberty knows no gender identity."

-- Republican Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen reacting to news that Cuba passed nondiscrimination protections for gay and lesbians. The Cuban Parliament will soon pass protections based on gender identity. Ros-Lehtinen is the LGBT community's biggest supporter in the Republican caucus.
