A new law that bans the dissemination of content in schools deemed to promote homosexuality and gender change went into effect Wednesday despite a warning from Europe’s top rights watchdog that the law risks discrimination against LGBT people. The new law that comes into force across Hungary prohibits sharing content on homosexuality or sex reassignment to people under 18 in school sex education programmes, films or advertisements. The government says it’s meant to protect children but critics of the law say it links homosexuality with pedophilia. EU leaders have slammed the law, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen calling it a “shame”.
