In this May 11, 2013 photo, Abrahan Bueno, 39, a gay transvestite artist known as "Imperio," descends a flight of stairs as he makes his way to the stage at the Karl Marx theater in Havana, Cuba. A week of drag shows, colorful marches and social and cultural events in Havana culminates Friday with celebrations of the International Day Against Homophobia.

In recent years, the Shiite-led government has begun turning it into a museum honoring the overwhelmingly Shiite and Kurdish victims of Saddam's Sunni-dominated but largely secular regime.
