Not with Their Children

Hungarians Ban LGBT Indoctrination, Defying the EU

In June 2021, the Hungarian Parliament passed what has been described as "sweeping legislation" aimed against industries and media that support and enable pedophilia. Among other things, the law explicitly bans content aimed at school-age children that "depicts sexuality for its own sake" or that promotes or displays homosexuality or so-called gender re-assignment for those suffering from gender dysphoria.

The heavy lifting in drafting and passing the legislation was done by Prime Minister Victor Orbán's Fidesz (Faith) Party, and it passed with a super-majority vote, thanks to support from Fidesz's rival conservative party, Jobbik, and the Hungarian Christian Democratic Party (Kereszténydemokrata Néppárt).
