On Wednesday (July 21), the prime minister of Hungary stated the upcoming referendum on “child protection”, which alludes to the discriminatory law which has been passed.
The law bans portrayals of LGBTQ+ content in schools through amendments that were made to a national child sex abuse law. It strictly refers to “content promoting gender change or homosexuality” within the school curriculum. “LGBTQ+ activists visit kindergartens and schools and conduct sexual education classes.
They want to do this here in Hungary as well,” Orban stated in a Facebook video on Wednesday. The referendum, which was announced three days before the Budapest Pride march, will consist of five pre-prepared questions.
