Can Europe resist the anti-LGBT politics of hate?

 |

As we navigate an increasingly tumultuous world laden with conflict, unconditional backing of equal rights for all will become increasingly essential for the well-being and resilience of minority groups within Europe, Camille Ogoti writes. Right-wing, anti-gender rhetoric is surging across Europe. From Hungary’s Viktor Orban, who has been vocally opposing what he frequently describes as “woke culture” and “gender ideology”, through to the Netherlands’ Gert Wilder, whose Freedom Party recently campaigned to “end political indoctrination … and gender madness”, the use of identity as a political weapon and the targeting of minority groups is intensifying in many EU member states. The sad reality is that, in 2024, despite the many advances for equity and equality in our societies, we are seeing a growing commitment of millions of euros to “culture war” groups, which aim to roll back the freedoms and values we, in Europe, take for granted.
