Hungary bans same-sex couples from adopting children

Victor Orban and his homophobic group of MPs are continuing the ferocious and hatred campaign agains Hungarian LGBT+ population. The legislation put forward by Prime Minister Viktor Orban's right-wing government says only married couples can adopt, with some exceptions for single relatives of the child who is going to be adopted. Until this law, even if same-sex marriage is illegal in Hungary, adoption has been possible if one partner applied on their own. This is such a dark moment for human rights, and not only in Hungary. From now on single people will require special approval from the government to adopt. In the same amendment approved on Tuesday family is defined as "based on marriage and the parent-child relation. The mother is a woman, the father a man". B...

Viktor Orban wants gay people to ‘leave our children alone’ in a homophobic attack to lesbian Cinderella book.

The Far-Right and homophobic prime minister of Hungary decided that a fairy-tale story book was way too dangerous for Hungarian children. That he is such a homophobic character very linked to the same politics of his fellow-politician Mr. Putin, we never had any doubt about, and now he is attacking a story book for children that is trying to show the reality of our days and features LGBT+. The book itself is a sweetened reflection of a normal society, and its characters include people with disabilities, the elderly, the poor and people from minority ethnic backgrounds having the majority of the stories with no references to the LGBT+ world if not just some light references, the far-right party in Hungary, together with the help of the Prime Minister, have seized upon the handful that d...

The Proud Boys group has denied being a homophobic organisation, but they are indeed a far-right and anti-migrant organisation. This is why actors, Canadian armed forces, users from all over the world have started sharing supporting pictures to drown out all posts related to this group. Who are these Proud Boys? Founded in 2016 by Canadian-British right-wing activist Gavin McInnes, the Proud Boys is a far-right, anti-immigrant, all-male group. The group ...
