Hungary parliament on Tuesday, June 15 passed a new law to ban the dissemination of contents in schools set to promote homosexuality and Gender change.

Prime Minister Viktor Orban (pictured above) has rallied against LGBT people and immigrants amid strong criticism from human rights groups and opposition parties.

His Fidesz party, which promotes a Christian-conservative agenda, joined the proposal banning school talks on LGBT issues to a another bill that strictly penalizes pedophilia, making it much harder for opponents of the anti-LGBT bill to vote against it.

Under 18’s under the Law  cannot be shown any content that encourages gender change or homosexuality. This also applies to advertisements. The law sets up a list of organizations allowed to provide education about sex in schools.

This is one of the few European countries where gay marriage is not recognized, only heterosexual couples can legally adopt children.
