A new law in Hungary banning LGBTQI content from schools will be put to a referendum to counter pressure from the European Union, which has branded the legislation as discriminatory.

The controversial law to remove LGBTQI topics from the classroom was pegged to a broader piece of legislation on child protection which included stronger penalties for peadophelia, a conflation that rights groups and several European countries say is offensive.  EFE
