Cuba Campaign Fights Homophobia

HAVANA TIMES, March 26 – A campaign against homophobia designed for and by young people began this Thursday with a lecture-debate by sexologist Mariela Castro, director of the National Center for Sex Education (CENESEX).

The drive’s slogan is “diversity is natural” and will last until June. The opening event took place at a Federation of University Student’s house at the University of Havana, reported IPS.

The previous day, Castro, daughter of President Raul Castro, told the foreign press accredited in Cuba that the reforms to the country’s Family Code in terms of sexual rights have found obstacles.

Those changes would represent recognition of legal unions between homosexual persons and the identity of transsexuals, something being promoted by CENESEX.
