Hungarian Prime Minister Orbán: I am Not Against Homosexuality
Hungarian Prime Minister Victor Orbán says he is not against homosexuality or homosexuals.
The controversial Hungarian law that would seriously discriminate against gays and other LGBTI people and several EU leaders – including Prime Minister Mark Rutte – strongly oppose is about parents and the way they want to raise their children, according to Orbán start of the EU summit in Brussels.
The Hungarian said critics have not read the law correctly. EU sources expect the topic to come up during the summit.
“It’s not on the agenda,” Orbán said. But he said he’s “available” to talk to whoever wants to. “I am a champion of freedom; during the communist regime, I defended the rights of homosexuals. This law is not about that,” said Orbán.
