Adela Hernandez je kubanska političarka i članica gradskog veća grada Kalbariena. Iako je kubanske vlasti prepoznaju kao osobu muškog pola, Adela Hernandez je od malih nogu živela kao žensko. Osamdesetih je provela dve godine u zatvoru zato što je „uticala opasno na okolinu“, pošto su roditelji odbacili njenu seksualnost. Radila je kao domarka bolnice i tehničarka na elektrokardiogramu.
2012. godine, trideset godina kasnije, izabrana je u gradsko veće grada Kaibariena, postavši tako prva transrodna osoba na javnoj funkciji u ovoj državi.

She worked as a hospital janitor, and later became a nurse and an electrocardiogram technician.
In 2012, thirtee year later, she was elected to the Municipal council of Calbarien, becoming first trasngender person to public office in this country.
