Cuba is  a very 'machoman' kind of society and "gonzo" which sound almost 
like  "ganso" is a very pejorative way to called someone  gay.




>From Dictionary.com:
Gonzo
1. Using an exaggerated, highly subjective style, especially in journalism:  “
a hyperkinetic, gonzo version of Graham Greene” (New Yorker). 
2. Bizarre; unconventional. 
 
so, in this country, Gonzalo's actions at the Regattabar may have been  
bizarre, but nothing gay is implied. it's just plain odd, not to mention a  shame.
