Havana, Dec 23 (IANS/EFE) Mariela Castro, the daughter of Cuban President Raul Castro and director of the National Sexual Education Center, has launched a blog.

“El blog de Mariela Castro” featured Castro’s first two posts Wednesday.

Castro, well-known in Cuba for her work in favour of the rights of sexual minorities, published her first blog article on the visit she made in October to Amsterdam and another on the discussions in the Cuban legislature concerning the “racial problem” on the Communist-ruled island.

In the second piece, Castro says that she was invited Tuesday to a working meeting of the national assembly at which lawmakers discussed racism and in which Culture Minister Abel Prieto and parliament speaker Ricardo Alarcon also participated.
