Hungary’s government orders disclaimers on books with gay content

Hungary’s government, which has made hostility to LGBT people a central part of its right-wing agenda, ordered a publisher on Tuesday to print disclaimers identifying books containing “behaviour inconsistent with traditional gender roles”. The government said the action was needed to protect consumers from being misled, after Labrisz, a Lesbian group, published a fairytale anthology, “Wonderland Is For Everyone”, which included some stories with gay themes. The book, whose authors say it is intended to teach children to be respectful of people of all backgrounds, features a tale of a doe who is granted a wish to become a buck, and a poem about a prince who marries another prince. Other stories depict minorities in a positive light, including Roma and disabled people. The character Snow White, renamed Leaf Brown, has dark skin.
