President underlines legislative advances in Cuba to guarantee rights

Havana, May 18 (Prensa Latina) The President of Cuba, Miguel Díaz-Canel, highlighted the island's legislative work to guarantee all rights to all people, on occasion of the International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia .

Through his Twitter account, the head of state greeted the day and pointed out that the Caribbean nation is evaluating laws aimed at greater inclusion.

In the same social network, the Cuban Foreign Ministry pointed out that the island celebrates this day with a draft Family Code away from any type of discrimination.

Similarly, the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) in Cuba renewed its commitment to the LGBTIQ+ community and Cuban institutions in the fight against all forms of segregation or stigma.

Traditionally, the National Center for Sex Education (Cenesex) celebrates the Cuban Days against Homophobia and Transphobia with various cultural and academic events, however, after the explosion at the Hotel Saratoga in this capital, on May 6, the actions will only be focused on scientific dialogue and social activism.

This year the designed activities seek to support the precepts defended in the project of the new Family Code in favor of respect and dignity of family plurality.

May 17 marks the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia to commemorate the removal of homosexuality from the list of mental illnesses, by the General Assembly of the World Health Organization, in 1990.
