On his Twitter account, the president saluted the celebration of the date and wrote, ‘Cuba is committed to guaranteeing #allRightsForAllPersons.’.
On May 17, the world commemorates the elimination of homosexuality from the list of mental diseases by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 1990.
This determined the annual celebration, centered in actions that serve to denounce the discrimination against LGBTIQ+ people (Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, Transgender, Intersexuals and Queers).
Cuba is holding the 14th Day against Homophobia and Transphobia, under the slogan ‘All the rights for all persons’.
As a result of the current epidemiological situation, the initiative, organized by the National Sex Education Center (CENESEX), will consist of academic dialogue, social activism and artistic initiatives on virtual spaces.
All of this is aimed at contributing to the comprehensive education on sexuality and the recognition of all people without distinctions as an exercise in equality and social justice.
