As is well known, the Cuban Castro regime has for years rejected same-sex couples. But evidently, they have been pressured by leftist globalist forces that impose themselves worldwide to adopt the same policies and objectives. The regime has accepted gender ideology to the point of hanging a giant flag with the LGTB colors covering the headquarters of the Ministry of Health in Havana on the International Day against Homophobia.
While the Caribbean country decides on a new family code, which might approve same-sex marriage, the imposition of symbols and demonstrations of power by the LGTB movement continues. In this case, they placed a massive flag on the historic Ministry of Health building, reported Reuters.
After independence, the allegations are that homosexuals in 1959 were deeply discriminated against and criminalized to the point of forcibly placing them in concentration camps intended exclusively to reverse their situation as homosexuals. Manuscripts published by Che Guevara proved the allegations.
However, there have been considerable advances in the LGTB agenda in Cuba during the last few years. Those that stand out are the right to free sex-change operations, the prohibition against discriminating on sexual grounds in the workplace, and several congresses against homophobia promoted by the state.
This year, due to the pandemic, the communist/Cuban authorities have not allowed any gathering of people to celebrate the day against homophobia. However, they decided to place the giant flag at the Ministry of Health and two other governmental institutions.
“I never thought I would live to see the flag of the sexual diversity movement hanging next to the Cuban flag in an institution as important as the Ministry of Health,” said Teresa de Jesus Fernandez. She is the coordinator of the National Network of Lesbian and Bisexual Women.
Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel was in charge of breaking with the hard line of the party, more linked to Castro’s orthodoxy. In addition, Diaz-Canel mocked the party’s orthodoxy by backing the LGBT movements and publicly expressed that Cuba will “guarantee all rights for all people.”
“We’ve come this far,” said LGBT+ activist Yasiel Valdés Girola, referring to the flag outside the Health Ministry. “What remains is for the new family code to recognize the legal union between two people, regardless of their gender or sex, and the opportunity to build a family.”
There is a great contradiction between the new tendencies of the state in Cuba that supports homosexuals and their ideological movement and its original orthodox structures that rejected homosexuality.
But it is also evident that the LGTB agenda is powerful enough to penetrate all power structures, even those in force.
Orthodoxy has historically and with determination condemned homosexuality in Cuba.
