The EU Commission has started legal steps against Hungary’s law banning LGBTQ content for minors and Poland’s “LGBTQ-free” zones.
The European Commission on Thursday launched legal cases against Hungary and some regions in Poland over anti-LGBTQ laws.
Hungary’s law banning the promotion of homosexuality or sex reassignment to schoolchildren has faced condemnation from the EU since its parliament passed the law.
In Poland, more than 100 regions have declared themselves “LGBTQ-ideology-free zones,” sparking criticism across the bloc.
“We start legal action against Hungary and Poland for violations of fundamental rights of LGBTIQ people,” the EU Commission said on Twitter.
Poland and Hungary have two months to respond.
