HAVANA TIMES --- Agent Rene Gonzalez, considered a Hero of the Republic 
of Cuba, attended the Gala Against Homophobia held Saturday at Havana's 
Karl Marx theater.

Gonzalez, the only released member of the Cuban Five, received on behalf 
of the group a special recognition given by Mariela Castro Espín, 
director of the National Sexual Education Center (CENESEX).

"We're here fighting a battle against behaviors that have made many 
people suffer. Suffering for not having freedom unites us. We must 
eliminate all forms of discrimination and lack of freedom," he told the 
predominantly LGBT audience.

Since its inception the Campaign Against Homophobia has expressed its 
support for the release and return of the five Cuban agents; four of 
them still remain in US prisons.
