Budapest Pride challenges Hungarian ‘LGBT propaganda’ law in court

A cheerful animated video featuring two vibrantly coloured people skating and rollerblading to a festival was banned from being aired during daytime hours in Hungary earlier this year and moved to the nighttime graveyard slot. The country’s media council reclassified what was supposed to be an advertisement for Budapest Pride’s Community Festival and Parade from “advertising for a social purpose” to ostensibly being educational material, and thus unsuitable for children. In 2021, the Hungarian government led by Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s Fidesz party amended the law on paedophilia and on the protection of children to limit their exposure to material “promoting homosexuality,” gender reassignment, and LGBT representation in the media or public space.
