In May 2020, the Fidesz-KDNP made it impossible to obtain legal gender recognition in Hungary. Háttér Society has been fighting the inhumane law on all platforms since the amendment was passed; now five of their clients have succeeded.
As part of the Erasmus+ project “Common Point - Innovative approaches to training mental health service providers for the quality support of LGBTQI people” we are excited to present a series of educational videos on various LGBTIQ+ topics.
