“We came to this park frequently. A friend, Leire Fernández, came up with the idea of ​​taking advantage of the visits to Monte Barreto to make some games, which she named Tortiolimpiadas, “explained Lidia Romero, a worker at Clandestina, a private enterprise that celebrates its fourth anniversary.
In Cuba, the term tortillera is used to disparately name lesbian women and its use is widespread.
