European Commission chief Ursula von der Leyen warned Hungary to reverse course on its controversial LGBTQ law. It is reported by Deutsche Welle.

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban's new legislation bans any so-called promotion of LGBTQ lifestyles or values. The measures come into effect on Thursday and will forbid teachers from educating children about gay relationships or for normalized LGBTQ relationships to be shown on TV.

The law is similar to one which came into force in 2013 in Russia which has been used to significantly crack down on LGBTQ rights and freedoms.

The Orban government insists it is an "Anti-Pedophile Law" which allows parents to educate their children about sexuality in the manner they choose.

Now, Brussels is considering legal action against the EU member state, and is also considering linking the disbursement of post-Covid recovery funds to the law's repeal.

"It is a disgrace this legislation... It is something that flies in the face of the values of the European Union," von der Leyen, who heads the EU executive, told the European Parliament in Strasbourg.
