Cuba approves free sex-change operations
USA Today Fri, 06 Jun 2008 11:49 PM PDT
Cuba has authorized sex-change operations and will offer them free for qualifying citizens, an official said Friday. The move is the latest in a series of changes implemented by President Raul Castro since he succeeded his elder brother, Fidel, in February. Raul Castro's daughter, Mariela, heads Cuba's National Center for Sex Education, which strongly backs the new policy.

I'm for it if makes a person feel better about themselves.
but think its humorous if Raul thinks this will be a good PR move for Cubas new image.
no mater what sex you are your still stuck in an oppressive regime.

I thought homosexuality was illegal in Cuba, so who will come out and ask for as sex change?

thats a good question, I don't know if that isn't just a rumor Dick Cheney started :-0
googled it
"Sexual relations between same-sex consenting adults 16 and over have been legal in Cuba since 1992, although same-sex relationships are not presently recognised by the state. In Cuba, people's organizations and public assembly must be state-approved, and LGBT associations and events were previously not permitted[citation needed], however, Havana now has a lively and vibrant gay scene."[1]

elbert: if I googled that I think I would put quotation marks around it so people didn't think that knowledge was from my personal experience. wink

Generally, people who have sex change operations are not homosexuals. They are two entirely different things.
