ILGA-Europe to join Hungary demo in Brussels
Today ILGA-Europe joins this demonstration in Brussels against recent amendments to the Hungarian constitution which seriously threaten democracy and human rights of various minority groups in Hungary and go against the fundamental principles of the European Union.
One of the amendments redefines family narrowly thus excluding same-sex couples and their families entirely. In fact, family is now defined as a union based on “marriage, and parental – children relation”. This completely disregards and excludes same-sex partners who are not legally allowed to marry in Hungary and also a significant number of heterosexual couples who are not married.
