Human rights groups have urged Romania to reject a bill banning so-called ‘gay propaganda’ in schools, like those introduced in Hungary and Russia.
The law, which has passed through the Senate, would see materials “promoting” being LGBTQ+ heavily restricted. Parliament’s lower house has the final say on whether or not it is introduced, with activists calling on it to stop it moving forward.
LGBTQ+ rights groups such as ACCEPT and MozaiQ said the legislation must not be implemented as it will have the power to limit things such as news and movies with a focus on the community, as well as Pride marches and protests. “Censorship in Budapest’s education system must not be enforced in Bucharest,” ACCEPT said in a statement to Reuters. “Romania must avoid the illiberal drift promoted by Hungary through such measures which were received harshly by the European Union. “Adopting explicitly homophobic and transphobic legislation by censoring information about sexual orientation and gender identity is a shame on Romania.
