EU threatens Hungary to reverse its controversial law banning LGBT content in schools and kids’ TV or face punishment



The European Union (EU) has threatened Hungary to reverse its controversial LGBTQ+ law or face consequences.



Last month, Hungary passed a law banning the teaching, sharing or online posting of homosexual or transgender materials to under 18 people, a law ostensibly designed to crack down on paedophilia, but critics say the law stigmatises support for the LGBTQ+ community.



Hungarian Prime Minister, Viktor Orban (pictured above) insists the law is to protect children but has received growing international protest over the law, which is due to take effect on Thursday, July 8.


The European Commision is now planning an infringement proceeding, which amounts to a lawsuit over failure to implement EU law that can lead to fines inflicted by the bloc's top court.


European Commission chief Ursula von der Leyen on Wednesday warned Hungry to reverse course on its anti-LGBTQ+ policy or EU funding to the country could be cut.Latest Post Follow us on Google newsTwitter and on Facebook
