Reinaldo Arenas

The lack of realism in his writing fell out of favour with the revolutionary cultural policy makers. In the mid-1960s the Castro regime openly persecuted homosexuals and Reinaldo Arenas abandoned the Revolution. His writings were censored and declared anti-revolutionary. --The Knitting Circle: Literature, Lesbian and Gay Staff Association, South Bank University, Last altered 18th. June, 2001
