A village in Hungary which is hoping to create a haven for people with traditional views about society has passed a local law which outlaws public displays of affection by gay people. There are other measures directed at other sections of the wider community, especially people of Muslim faith.
“We primarily welcome people from western Europe – people who wouldn’t like to live in a multicultural society,” Mayor Laszlo Toroczkai told the BBC. Mr Toroczkai is mayor of Asotthalom, a remote village in the southern Hungarian plains, situated around two hours from the capital Budapest. “It’s very important for the village to preserve its traditions.”
