    A new law that bans the dissemination of content in schools deemed
    to promote homosexuality and gender change went into effect
    Wednesday despite a warning from Europe’s top rights watchdog that
    the law risks discrimination against LGBT people.

    The new law that comes into force across Hungary prohibits sharing
    content on homosexuality or sex reassignment to people under 18 in
    school sex education programmes, films or advertisements.

    The government says it’s meant to protect children but critics of
    the law say it links homosexuality with pedophilia.

    EU leaders have slammed the law, European Commission President
    Ursula von der Leyen calling it a “shame”.

    Among other things, the changes to the Hungarian Constitution in
    December 2020 altered the definition of families to exclude
    transgender and other LGBT individuals, defining the basis of the
    family as “marriage and the parent-child relationship.” It declared
    that “the mother is a woman and the father is a man.”
