More than 700 same-sex marriages celebrated in Cuba


More than 700 same-sex marriages have been celebrated in Cuba since the new Family Code was approved in a referendum last year. The figure was confirmed this Wednesday by the National Center for Sex Education (CENESEX), at the opening of the Cuban Days against Homophobia and Transphobia, which will take place on the island until May 20. In total, in the six months since the approval of the Code and the end of March, 745 marriages were performed, 462 of them between men and 283 between women; while 35 affective de facto unions between people of the same sex were formalized. Precisely, this and other advances of the LGTBIQ+ community in Cuba covered by the new legislation will be celebrated during the 16th edition of these days, taking place under the motto “For all families, love is law,” according to the organizers.
