A children's books editor from Hungary [Boldizsar Nagy] who has received death threats and homophobic abuse over his work said on Monday he would leave the country following the introduction of a law banning LGBT+ content in schools. The law that came into force last week, which has been condemned by the European Union, bans material that "promotes or depicts gender change and homosexuality" to under-18s. Critics say the legislation could fuel discrimination against LGBT+ Hungarians.
