LGBT Cubans Seek Asylum in the Netherlands

01/28/2018 | Washington Blade

Two Cuban LGBT activists on Sunday asked for asylum in the Netherlands. Victor Manuel Dueñas, who founded an LGBT community center in the Cuban town of Santo Domingo, and his cousin, bought roundtrip tickets to Moscow from Havana’s José Martí International Airport with a layover at Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport. Dueñas and his cousin left Havana on Saturday night and arrived in Amsterdam the next day. Dueñas posted a short video to his Facebook page before he and his cousin formally asked for asylum. “A group of Cubans have come here,” he said.
