May 2024

This report summarizes the results of a nationally representative public opinion poll conducted by the Median Public Opinion and Market Research Institute in November 2023. Háttér Társaság commissioned the research. The research covered topics such as the general framing of homosexuality, social attitudes related to coming out, support for marriage and parenting by same-sex couples, legal gender recognition for trans people, views on the so-called "child protection" law, and opinions about proactive measures by public bodies and employers.

In Hungary, marriages concluded by same-sex couples abroad are not recognized, but at the same time, it is possible for the same persons to establish a registered partnership after their marriage.
