EU to launch legal action against Hungary over law discriminating against LGBTQ citizens

The European Commission will launch legal action against Hungary in response to a law viewed as discriminating against LGBTQ citizens.

The Commission will use “all powers available” to force Hungary to repeal the law, president Ursula von der Leyen said.

-AD-

The “anti-paedophilia” law was implemented by Hungary, despite a warning from the EU.

It is being argued that the law conflates paedophilia with homosexuality, affecting those of the LGBTQ community.

The law stops the sharing of content which promotes being gay to children and teenagers.

-AD-

The law reads that, “in order to ensure… the protection of children’s rights, pornography and content that depicts sexuality for its own purposes or that promotes deviation from gender identity, gender reassignment and homosexuality shall not be made available to persons under the age of eighteen”.
