Hungary Bans Gay Content in Schools

Hungary’s Parliament has passed a law banning gay people to be featured in school education materials or TV shows for those under 18s. The Hungarian ruling party Fidesz went ahead with the legislation despite strong protests from human rights officials. The new legislation outlaws sharing information with under 18s that the government considers being promoting homosexuality or gender change. A government spokesman said that there are contents which children under a certain age can misunderstand and which may have a detrimental effect on their development at the given age. Or it may be information that children cannot process. It could therefore confuse their developing moral values or their image of themselves or the world. Companies and large organisations will also be banned from running adverts in solidarity with gay people if they are deemed to target under-18s.
