Hungary's Anti-LGBTQIA
PROPAGANDA LAW

Hungary is the first country to have imported Russia’s 2013 anti-LGBT propaganda law into the European Union. Passed in June 2021, the "Act on stricter actions against paedophile offenders", named to discredit LGBTIQ+ people as paedophiles, outlaws sharing information seen as promoting homosexuality and transidentities with under-18s in advertising, media, schools, bookshops and in family interactions.

In 2023, 16 Member States, the European Parliament and the European Commission joined forces to bring this law to the EU Court of Justice - making this the largest human rights case in the history of the EU
 
A ruling is expected in 2024.

The regulation allows the EU institutions to freeze funds when breaches of the rule of law in a Member State are so serious that they threaten the correct implementation of the EU budget. Funds were frozen under two other regimes (EUR 22 billion in cohesion funds and EUR 9.5 billion of the recovery and resilience facility) over similar concerns.
