“No LGBT discrimination in the EU”: 16 European leaders appeal | Hungary, Orban: “Ours is not an anti-homosexual law”

Other leaders who signed the same message on Twitter at the same time, started again from Point Pedro Sanchez to Mark Rutte. The latter commented: “With this anti-LGBT law, Hungary has no place in the EU.” Leaders from Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Italy, Estonia, Ireland, Greece, Spain, France, Cyprus, Latvia, Luxembourg, Malta, Holland, Finland and Sweden are expected to sign the letter.

EU President David Sassoli also intervened. “When democratic values ​​are attacked, our response must be firm – he said – discrimination is not in line with EU values: this is why we are concerned by the latest Hungarian laws.”

The initiative does not explicitly mention the law recently passed by Budapest, but comes before the EU summit, where the issue will be raised. The letter reads: “On June 28, LGBT Pride Day, and in the light of threats against fundamental rights, and especially in a policy of non-discrimination based on sexual orientation, we express our connection to our fundamental values.”

“It will be a day to remember that we are a diverse and tolerant community that has committed to the free development of every citizen’s personality, including their sexual orientation and gender identity. This is a time to celebrate recently. We believe. “

Orban’s answer – “We do not have a law against homosexuality in Hungary. We have a law that protects parents and children. It is always better to read first and then react”. Thus Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban responded to leaders who criticized him.
