American media still refer to Juan Guaidó, America’s hand-picked “legitimate leader” or “legitimate president” of Venezuela, as having an “administration.”

The truth is that his “administration” — consisting of advisors and other opposition leaders — are all either arrested and being held by the government, hiding, seeking asylum in various foreign embassies (Spanish, Italian, Brazilian and Argentinian) in the capital of Caracas, or have fled to other countries like Brazil and Colombia.

Guaidó, apparently a government of one, has so far avoided arrest probably because the elected Venezuelan President Maduro doesn’t want to give the US an excuse to try and rescue him, or to launch military actions of some kind against Venezuela as the White House keeps threatening to do.

It is impossible to deny the work of this Center, and its director and leader, Mariela Castro Espín, who have managed to put on the agenda of the government and in our legal system brushstrokes of the most advanced thinking on gender and sexuality.

Just to give an example: Who would have thought that a country full of ancestral “machismo” and social atavism typical of underdevelopment would discuss, openly and publicly, the inclusion in the new Constitution the right of any person, regardless of their sexual orientation, to get married?
