Much has changed in Cuba since the 1960s, when homosexuals were sent to work camps, or the 1970s, when gay men and women were denied certain jobs as ''ideological deviants''. Since President Raul Castro took office, Cuba has allowed doctors to perform sex change operations and the parliament is studying proposals to legalize same-sex unions. REUTERS/Enrique De La Osa
