Hungary passes anti LGBTQ law ahead of 2022 election

Hungary’s parliament passed legislation on Tuesday (14 Jun) banning gay people from being featured in school educational materials or TV shows for minors, sViktor Orbán’s ruling party intensified its campaign against LGBT rights.

The national assembly passed the legislation by 157 votes to one, after MPs in the ruling Fidesz party ignored a last-minute plea by one of Europe’s leading human rights officials to abandon the plan as “an affront against the rights and identities of LGBTI persons”.
