Hungary PM says ‘no money in the world’ would make him accept LGBTQ+ ‘propaganda’


Hungary’s prime minister Viktor Orbán has claimed that ‘no money in the world’ would make him accept LGBTQ+ “propaganda” after the EU froze funding to the country in 2022. In 2021, Hungary passed a law banning discussion of LGBTQ+ people in schools and in the media, similar to Russia’s cruel “anti-propaganda” bill. Since then, the EU has launched legal action against Hungary over the law, also freezing funding to the country in 2022 due to concerns over LGBTQ+ rights, the asylum system, academic freedoms and more, totalling 17 conditions for Hungary to meet before the money is granted.
