Participants gather near the parliament building in Budapest on June 14, 2021, during a demonstration against the Hungarian government’s draft bill seeking to ban the “promotion” of homosexuality and sex changes, which will be discussed by Hungarian MPs tomorrow. – The Hungarian ruling party of right-wing Prime Minister Viktor Orban on June 10, 2021 introduced legislative amendments seeking to ban the “promotion” of homosexuality and sex changes. The move was swiftly denounced by Amnesty International, Budapest Pride and three other rights groups who compared the Fidesz party proposals to a similar law in Russia which punished acts of homosexual “propaganda” aimed at young people. If the Hungarian move becomes law it would effectively ban educational programmes and publicity of LGBT groups, according to the 11-page document seen by AFP.
