Cuba’s LGBTQ community celebrates same-sex marriage with pride conga

05/13/2023 | Jamaica Observer

Around 200 Cubans marched in Havana on Saturday to the rhythm of conga, a popular dance, protesting against homophobia and transphobia, and celebrating the legalisation of same-sex marriage. Chanting “socialism yes, homophobia no”, demonstrators swayed their hips and beat rhythmically on drums as they cheered the ‘Family Code’, passed last September. The code permits surrogate pregnancies as long as no money changes hands and legally recognises same-sex adoptions, as well as several fathers or mothers in addition to the biological parents. It also defines marriage as the union between two people, rather than that of a man and a woman, while boosting the rights of children, the elderly and the disabled.
