Transgender Wedding Takes Place In Cuba!!!

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayLove LineCubismoLGBT

first transgender wedding in cuba

We are SO happy to see so much progress taking place in Cuba!

For the first time in the country's history, aside from one lone reported wedding many years ago, a gay man has gotten married to a woman who had a sex-change operation that was paid for by Cuba!!!

The wedding between 37-year-old Wendy Iriepa and 31-year-old Ignacio Estrada took place on Saturday in Havana.

Here's what Estrada had to say about his momentous wedding:

"This is the first wedding between a transsexual woman and a gay man. We celebrate it at the top of our voices and affirm that this is a step forward for the gay community in Cuba."

Unfortunately, same-sex marriage is still illegal in the country, but this is definitely a big step in the right direction!

Keep moving forward, Cuba! We're proud!

    a gay man has gotten married to a woman who had a sex-change operation??? so that must mean that even enlightened gay men think that trans gender blokes are still blokes? what an eff up!

    Re: Truth_Is_A-Virus – Don't forget that the sex change was paid for by Cuba…. a state funded sex change to make a man a woman to marry a man who is gay….

    You know what Mario, you should have just said a couple got married in Cuba, and is now lucky to have a future possible opportunity to purchase and sell a house. The basic freedoms in Cuba are missing for 100% of the population. I think that should take precedent over this.

    A gay man got married to a transgender woman? so basically that means that he is now living as a straight man married to a female.

    After the nuptials the "Odd Couple" were transported to the local confinement center and placed in the appropriate cells so that their fellow inmates could also celebrate in the joining of these love birds, understood that a good time was had by all. Thank you Mario for a wonderful story

    Way to be insensitive and ignorant. A man marrying a transgendered woman is not a "gay man"……he is a straight man.

  6. 6

    My head is spinning over the fact that the country paid for someone to have a sex change operation. Talk about a waste of cash……
    Re: WTFPerez??Re: fickdichpogmothoin! – did you read the comment made by the man that got married?? he calls himself gay…………..

    Re: WTFPerez?? – Um yes he is.. after all he really did marry a man, just one who had their sex changed.. So disgusting.

    Pretty dress.

    Why would a gay man marry a woman? Even if they left her dick, she still looks like a woman and isn't that all wrong? Now if he had married a transgender woman turned into a man I'd understand, but this is all screwed up. Last thing I knew gay men liked men and not men that looked like women or women at all.

    I just threw up in my mouth. Next you'll be reporting on Cuba's first legal marriage between a pedophile and child (which would likely be you and MattyB).

  11. 11

    wait wait wait…..Cuba PAID for this operation?? That is completely ABSURD! Just one more thing that is wrong with that pathetic excuse for a country.

  12. 12

    Uummmmmm, don't you mean the TAX PAYERS of Cuba paid for the operation?

  13. k-lee says – reply to this


    Hah., If he wants a vag, he should have married a real girl.

  14. 14

    Cutting off your weenie does make you a girl. That face is clearly a dude!

  15. 15

    Is that Ashton Kutcher in the background? Maybe he mistook the bride for Demi and was trying to break up the wedding. =)

    Ok first of I'm glad this happened but what really upsets me is that they and YOU perez identified the guy as gay. I'm transgender and I don't date nor am attracted to gay men, defeats the whole purpose of going through what we go through to be identified as gay. You perez you are gay, you like gay men who like to be men. Transgender women like STRAIGHT men who like woman! UGH! This is why people ask ignorant questions. PEREZ as much as you fight against rights, maybe you should educate yourself more on transgender individuals. You should of caught this and made corrections.

    Re: liarliarpantsonfire – Very well said! I have always asked myself that question over and over and I still don't have an answer!

  18. 18

    god, that is disgusting. those trannys deserve to die.

  19. 19

    Perez your a freaking idiot and an embarrassment to Cuban people everywhere. Your happy that a communist government paid for some ones sex change meanwhile people are starving and lacking basic human rights? You make me sick!

  20. 20

    I feel quite sorry for her, if her husband idetifies as gay :( Finally she has achieved her womanhood, and then to be married to someone who appearantly see her as a man!
    If the 'gay man' is the words of someone else, then they are idiots.

    Regardless of the changes of gender and who paid for the operation, the point that you people are obviously missing is that people are being themselves–they are exactly who they WANT to be and are LOVING each other and they are getting support. Cuba can't change and prosper unless people start to think differently and its obvious open-mindedness is spreading. Why do the logistics matter when people in this country aren't accepted for who they are and who they want to be with? It's shameful. Get over yourselves and just wish the happy couple well.

    How one can call the groom a gay man? A transgender female has female genitalia now; thus, she is a female! Saying that the bride is still a man is prejudicial. So, the groom is a straight man because he is married to a person with female genitalia (any genetic girl has it already; so, he could marry any genetic female and have the same result). Interesting…. how can one change his sexuality so quickly? Being a gay man means being attracted to a sausage not taco…

    My girlfriend is a transgender woman, and I am a genetic woman. We ARE gay or lesbians, as far as anyone is concerned, not a straight couple.
