Hungary’s right-wing Fidesz government has drafted legislation banning mediums promoting LGBTQI+content to minors.
Hungary’s proposed law outlines those under 18 will be banned from seeing pornographic content, or any LGBTQ+ media that encourages gender change or homosexuality.
Disgustingly, the proposal is included in a Government bill that punishes pedophilia.
Currently, The Hungarian and Polish government are both under formal EU investigation for alleged breaches of European Union rule-of-law standards.
Neither country recognises gay marriage, and both have laws restricting gay adoption. Hungary’s constitution states that marriage is for heterosexual couples.
I’m begging you to please share these informative posts I made about Hungary violating basic human rights of the LGBT+ community.

Hungarian PM Viktor Orban has been widely criticised in the EU for diminishing the rights of migrants and other minorities and tolerating anti-Semitism.
People don’t want homophobic, Russian-style laws in Hungary. Protests under way in Budapest against the law that would ban the “promotion” of sexuality of young people and even advertisements by groups or companies in solidarity with the LGBT+ community. pic.twitter.com/FIji5PLH1J

Orban is the leader of the right-wing Fidesz government, which has been in power since 2010.
Last year, the Fidesz government condemned a Hungarian children’s book, Wonderland Is For Everyone, which recasts fairy tale characters in roles representing minorities, notably LGBTQI+ people.
The Fidesz labelled it “homosexual propaganda”, and called for it to be banned from schools.
when will the EU take action against hungary? their new anti lgbtq law is absolutely disgusting what the fuck
