The Hungarian government faces serious criticisms on the recently adopted homophobic and transphobic propaganda law.  When questioned by European leaders, Orbán spread a number of lies to defend the law. In this article we provide a detailed rebuttal of those lies.

Yesterday, June 10, the Hungarian ruling party, Fidesz, introduced an amendment that would severely restrict freedom of speech and children’s rights by banning LGBTQI-themed educational programs and public service advertisements. Out of  Hungarian LGBTQI people, 42% have thought about suicide and 30% have attempted it. This new amendment - which eerily mimics the Russian propaganda law - would further poison public opinion.

In January the pro-government news site Vasarnap.hu published a story about a “boy with two fathers”, in which, besides using derogatory language, they also claimed the couple tricked the authorities by hiding they were a same-sex couple and pretending only one of them would adopt as a single parent. The Court declared these were unfounded allegations and ordered the news site to rectify their mistake.

A lack of warning about “patterns of behavior deviating from traditional gender roles” appearing in a book violates the rights and interests of consumers - says the Hungarian Consumer Protection Authority. Háttér Society and Labrisz Lesbian Association will challenge the discriminatory ruling in court.
