CEU's Statement on the Hungarian Government’s Anti-LGBTQ+ Legislation

In light of the Hungarian government’s legislation outlawing portrayals of homosexuality or sex reassignment with people under the age of 18, and the disgraceful and false link the legislation draws between homosexuality and pedophilia, CEU takes this opportunity to state, once again, its commitment to freedom of expression, equality and equal respect for the dignity of all members of our university community and the people we seek to serve. We stand with all those in Hungary and beyond who oppose this legislation and affirm our solidarity with all those whose dignity has been impugned and degraded.
