SAN FRANCISCO -- Cuban first daughter Mariela Castro is planning to meet with San Francisco's lesbian, gay, transgender and bisexual community during a U.S. visit next week that is being opposed by some Cuban-American politicians.

The San Francisco LGBT Center said Friday that it would host the meeting Wednesday night, the day before Castro is scheduled to lead a panel at a conference organized by the Latin American Studies Association.

The 50-year-old daughter of Cuban President Raul Castro is a noted gay rights advocate in her country and head of Cuba's National Center for Sex Education.

Gloria La Riva, an organizer with a coalition of anti-war groups called ANSWER SF, says Castro also is scheduled to give a talk at San Francisco General Hospital on Wednesday afternoon about Cuba's policies toward transgender people.
