The last match -- POSTER
Before LA PARTIDA Spanish director Antonio Hens already made gay themed movies dealing with prostitution. His biggest success is the short film EN MALAS COMPAÑÍAS (DOORS CUT DOWN), which had its premiere in June 2000 at the San Francisco International Lesbian and Gay Film Festival and was released two years later in the US in the short film DVD series BOYS BRIEFS 2.

In Cuba there were up in the 1980s state gay persecution. Although homosexual acts between adults are legal since 1979, public actions can still be punished by the police because of "antisocial behavior". The first approved Gay Pride Parade took place in 2011. The daughter of president Raúl Castro, Mariela Castro, is a strong supporter of gay rights in Cuba.
