Cuba's new constitution paves way for same-sex marriage

Cuba is set to become the latest country in Latin America to approve gay marriage, after the National Assembly on Sunday signed off on a new constitution that defines marriage as “the consensual union of two people, regardless of gender”.

The new constitution, known as the Magna Carta – which also recognises private property for the first time since the Cold War – will be put to a referendum later this year.

The news was met with elation by the LGBTQ community, many of whom were hopeful but not certain the measure would pass.

Sex-change operations were legalised in 2008 and are carried out at no cost to the patient. Cuban surgeons performed dozens last year.

Elsewhere in Latin America and the Caribbean, same-sex marriage is legal in Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil, and Colombia. But homosexuality remains a criminal offence in seven Caribbean island nations.

1. Good.

As a F.L.A.G., I won't visit any of the Caribbean nations that prohibit open homosexuality until they change their laws.
