Can homophobic policies win elections?
In Hungary, a crackdown on the civil liberties of the LGBTQ+ community has been passed by the government. Measures include banning the depiction of homosexuality to under-18s in TV programmes, adverts and education. An incentive for this is the upcoming election in Hungary. But why could this win the government votes and keep them in power? And why in the past have populist leaders targeted the LGBTQ+ community? In this episode, host Dermot Murnaghan is joined by reporter at Politico, Lili Bayer; Dr Richard Mole, professor of political sociology in the school of Slavonic and Eastern European studies at University College London; and Boldizsar Nagy, editor of a book of fairy tales for children.
