People’sWorld.org — If approved by Cuban voters next month, the country’s new Family Code will stand as a social revolution, enshrining the right of all people to form a family regardless of sex or gender identity and recognizing a variety of family forms. On July 22, the National Assembly of Cuba passed the bill, a legal document that responds to the reality of Cuban families today. That decision set in motion a popular referendum that will take place September.
The Family Code, as explained by a young Cuban activist, “protects vulnerable people more, brings together a number of measures to help society, [and] enables new opportunities since it recognizes…the family bond of people.”
