Currently, Cuba does not recognize same-sex marriage, civil unions, or any other form of status for same-sex couples. A civil union proposal was first made in 2007, though was never brought up for a vote. It has been announced that new legislation will be presented in September 2009, with a bill offering all the rights of marriage in Cuba under the title "civil union."[1] Same-sex couples will be able to formally adopt, and the bill will also ban discrimination based on one's sexual orientation or gender identity. Should the legislation pass, Cuba would become the first Caribbean state to recognise same-sex unions. It would also be the first communist country to pass any form of recognition of same-sex couples. Such legislation has been heavily campaigned for by Raul Castro's daughter, who has stressed that civil unions should be established in the meantime in order to supply same-sex couples with rights instead of pushing for full marriage rights, as it takes ten years to amend the constitution of Cuba, which limits marriage to opposite-sex couples.
