Historic referendum in Cuba allows for same-sex marriages and the adoption of children for gay couples

Posted: Monday, September 26, 2022. 4:35 pm CST.

By Benjamin Flowers: Same-sex couples can legally marry and adopt children in Cuba following a historic referendum in the country, Reuters reports.

The Código De Las Familias referendum saw a 66.9 percent majority (3.9 million people) voting “yes” to the new measures which also promotes equality among men and women when it comes to sharing domestic rights and responsibilities.

Meanwhile, 33.1 percent of voters (1.95 million people) voted “no”. The results were confirmed by National Electoral Council President Alina Balseiro Gutiérrez earlier today.

Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel, took to social media following the announcement, celebrating the results as a victory for the Cuban people and posting a banner that reminds that “Love is already the law.”

“Justice has been done,” Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel tweeted Monday, according to a translation by Reuters. “Starting today, we will be a better nation. It is paying off a debt with several generations of Cuban men and women, whose family projects have been waiting for this Law for years.”

The referendum was reportedly met with an “unusual” amount of resistance, reports say, despite it being backed by the government, though the voter turnout tends to conflict with the level of resistance reported.
