Elle Hungary Goes Full Gay In Defiance of Country’s Anti-LGBTQ+ Agenda

Elle Hungary

The September issue of Elle Hungary went against the anti-LGBTQ agenda of the government when it featured a pair of gay dads with their child on its front cover.

Titled “Born of Love,” the issue featured Hungarian restaurateur Hubert Hlatky Schlichter and his husband, neurosurgeon Laszlo Szegedi, with their baby daughter Hannabel. The two were kissing the child tenderly on the head.

In its statement, Elle Hungary said that it intends to “contribute to the acceptance of rainbow families” and to “campaign all over the country for love and all forms of family.” In its introductory article, Elle Hungary also said that the front feature “highlight[s] the simple truth: love knows no limits.”

Same-sex marriage in Hungary remains illegal. With the election of Viktor Orban, a hard-line right-wing politician, as prime minister, the government has enacted several anti-LGBTQ+ policies. In 2020, a law was passed that prohibited adoption for couples who aren’t married, effectively banning same-sex couples from adopting children.

Early this year, Orban attempted to pass a law that would allow citizens to report LGBTQ+ families to authorities, only to be vetoed by the country’s president, a surprising act from Orban’s ally.

“Every child deserves to grow up in a safe, caring and supportive environment and no one can prevent this based on their parents’ gender identity or sexual orientation,” Elle Hungary also said in its Instagram post. “Hlatky Simple Hubert and Dr. László Szegedi confess frankly about the difficulties and prejudices they had to face at home as a gay couple and how destructive it was for them with the arrival of their little daughter. With his story, we want to send a message to everyone who has recently felt more attacks on him or his loved ones: you are not alone, and there is a positive scenario.”
