Transit Havana

In Havana, transsexuals Odette, Juani and Malú wait for genital surgery – performed by European top surgeons and organized by the president’s daughter, Mariela Castro. Castro is leading a sexual revolution combined with classic state socialism.

New possibilities face old problems: will Cuban trans people find happiness despite intolerance, poverty and prostitution?
