Statement rejecting new legislation in Hungary

Inclusion is inclusion, for LGBTQIA+ students, for migrant students, for all students.
On the 14th of June, Hungary’s parliament passed a law banning any kind of education for children regarding LGBTQIA+ issues. A huge step back for Hungary and for the European Union and European Commission who we ask to engage seriously with this issue. “The Hungarian legislation outlaws sharing information with under-18s that the government considers to be promoting homosexuality or gender change.”
SIRIUS believes that decisions about children’s emotional, mental academic, physical and moral development should be based on best-evidenced practice so that children can flourish into who they are and pursue critical thought while valuing inclusion of all and a happier, healthier society. We wholeheartedly reject this new piece of legislation.
