The LGBTQI community has been the most discriminated community since the beginning. State-sponsored homophobia is practiced in several countries. Hungary has been the country continuously promoting the segregation of the community from the normal social standards. Therefore, the country recently passed a new law whereby minors are restricted to be given education about homosexuals in schools or on media platforms. This has resulted in the violation of the Right to expression and right to inclusive education. The step can lead to the youth of the country being misguided and following the conservative norms in the later stage. The paper studies the newly passed Hungarian law. Alongside, it focuses on the laws implemented by the European Union for the protection of the LGBT+ community. The paper is a critical study of the promotion of homophobia by the national government. It also studies the criticism being offered by various International Organizations and countries of the European Union against the newly termed Anti-gay laws. There is a need for a uniform law in the European Union to have a more strict and uniform law among its member states for equality based on sexual orientation. The paper gives an analytical study on the consequences of the step taken by Hungary by doing a comparative study of similar laws in Poland.
