Romania threatened with legal action over ‘shameful’ LGBTQ+ ‘propaganda’ bill

A cross-party group of MEPs have called on Romania to drop a proposed law comparable to Russia’s so-called “gay propaganda” ban. Romania is considering a bill that would ban the use of materials in schools that “promote” being LGBTQ+. It has already passed through the country’s Senate despite warnings from human rights groups that it would “demonise and marginalise the LGBT community” and “fuel Russian propaganda and Moscow disinformation campaigns”. On Thursday (16 June), 44 members of the European Parliament’s LGBTI Intergroup signed a letter to Romanian officials slamming the “shameful” bill and urging the Chamber of Deputies, the lower house, to kill it. “We view this bill as a particularly worrying development, given its resemblance to the Hungarian bill… and to the Russian ‘anti-LGBTQ’ propaganda law,” the letter stated.
