Justice minister: Hungary will continue to resist pressure of ‘LGBTQ lobby’

Hungary will continue to resist "the pressure of the LGBTQ lobby", Justice Minister Judit Varga said on Facebook after discussing the European Commission's strategy on children's rights with her European Union counterparts on Thursday.

In her English-language post, Varga said she and her Polish counterpart had vetoed a push by “certain Member States” to allow LGBTQ activists into schools.

“We will never let LGBTQ activists into our schools,” she said.

The minister said the member states who were in favour of allowing activists into schools believed that “ensuring extra rights for the LGBTQ lobby” was more important than fighting child abuse and child prostitution, guaranteeing the rights of special needs children or standing up against any form of discrimination, calling their stance “unbelievable”.
