Austria to Join LGBTQ Lawsuit Against Hungary While Facing Homophobic Crime Epidemic at Home

03/21/2023 | Hungary Today

Austria will join the Commission’s infringement case against Hungary over the so-called “anti-LGBT propaganda law,” EU and Constitutional Affairs Minister Karoline Edtstadler (ÖVP) said Monday evening in Brussels at an event organized by the European Forum Alpbach, Die Presse reports. When asked by the newspaper, Edtstadler said she would support the Commission in its infringement proceedings against the alleged criminalization of sexual minorities. Thus, after five weeks of debate, the Austrian government has agreed on a common position on this issue. Austria’s decision to join the LGBTQ lawsuit against Hungary is not without controversy though, as the country has recorded exponentially higher figures for homophobic attacks than Hungary.
