Timeline of how the Fidesz-KDNP government and its parliamentary majority has been systematically undermining the freedom and equal rights of sexual and gender minorities ever since they came into power in 2010, and especially since the spring of 2019.
Hungarian Minister of Justice submitted legislative amendments to the Parliament that stigmatize same-sex couples raising children and transgender people, making single-parent adoption and LGBTQI school education programs impossible.
The President of the Republic has signed the law that makes legal gender recognition impossible despite human rights concerns raised by domestic and international bodies.
Almost two years after the suspension of gender and name change requests, Parliament has passed a bill that prohibits the legal gender recognition of transgender people. Although the European Parliament, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, and other international players opposed the bill, the Government did not refrain from introducing a law violating a constitutional fundamental right. LGBTI organizations have now turned to the President of the Republic asking him to send the law for review to the Constitutional Court.
22 months after the suspension of gender and name change requests, the government would now prohibit legal gender recognition of transgender people.
