Hungary's parliament voted 157-1 in favor of the anti-LGBTQ propaganda law June 15. The ruling Fidesz party submitted the proposed law earlier this month after Prime Minister Viktor Orban claimed the law is needed to protect children from pedophilia.

It echoes Russia's 2013 Anti-Homosexuality Propaganda law. The bill would ban showing educational materials, advertising, and other "promotion" of same-sex relationships, and/or gender identity to anyone under 18 years of age.

It prohibits pornographic material. LGBTQ and human rights advocates immediately condemned the bill, calling it a tool that will create more discrimination and further stigmatize LGBTQ people in an already hostile environment.
