Hungarian media to publish LGBTI campaign despite risk of fines

Three television channels and several magazines will publish an awareness campaign to educate on LGBTI families, despite the Hungarian media regulator having earlier initiated proceedings against networks on the same grounds, EURACTIV’s media partner Telex reported. Comedy Central, the Paramount Network, and MTV will broadcast the Foundation for Rainbow Families’ (Szivárványcsaládokért Alapítvány) social campaign despite knowing that the Hungarian National Media and Infocommunications Authority (NMHH) has already initiated an inquiry against their competitor, RTL Klub, for doing the same. Last June, the Hungarian parliament passed a law introducing heavy sanctions on sexual crimes against minors. However, due to last-minute changes submitted by MPs of the ruling Fidesz party, the act now outlaws “promoting or portraying” homosexuality or sex reassignment to minors and limits sexual education in schools.
