Nevertheless, those aspects related to sexual orientation and gender identity found a stronger cultural resistance expressed also in politics and laws. These weak points of the National Program for Sex Education have achieved successes by the beginning of the Third Millennium.
A historical periodization of the National Program for Sex Education in Cuba is presented, having as the analysis point its scientific development (theoretical, methodological and practical). The results that prove progressive changes in favor of the rights of women, girls, boy, adolescents and LGBT population are presented in detail.
The sexual education focused on the exercise of the full rights of women, children and young people created conditions to move forward into other sexual rights, including those of the LGBT population. It has been shown that the implementation of laws and policies is not enough to guarantee the respect of sexual rights. These must be supported by educational strategies and constant social communication, all in constant evaluation.
