Recognition of same-sex unions in Cuba
|This article is outdated. (July 2013)|
A civil union proposal was first made in 2007, though was never brought up for a vote. It was announced that new legislation was going to be presented in September 2009, with a bill offering all the rights of marriage in Cuba as "civil unions". The bill was reportedly before the country's Parliament and promoted by Mariela Castro, director of the Cuban Sexual Education Center and daughter of Cuba's President Raul Castro. If the bill had been approved, it would have made Cuba the first Caribbean state to recognise same-sex unions. It would also have been the first communist country to pass any form of recognition of same-sex couples. As of September 2014, no action has been taken on this legislation.
