A first-ever Rainbow Cuba Tour for LGBT people and their friends is being organized by Cuba Education Tours from May 7 to 15. The program coincides with rallies and forums in Havana to commemorate the International Day Against Homophobia (IDAHO). Tour participants from across North America will meet Cuban activists seeking greater equality and understanding for LGBT people on the island.
