Hungary on Aug. 6 issued a decree that restricts the sale of children’s books with LGBTQ-specific themes. Reuters reported the decree mandates bookstores to sell children’s books that Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s government has concluded promote homosexuality in “closed wrapping.” The decree requires bookstores to sell children’s books that Orbán’s government says promote sex-reassignment surgery and contain “explicit” descriptions of sexuality separately. Reuters also reported the decree prohibits the sale of these books within 656 feet (200 meters) of a school or a church. The decree is the latest in a series of steps Orbán’s government has taken to rollback LGBTQ rights in Hungary.
