Együtt leader Viktor Szigetvári said the debate among the parties attending the conference was about how to extend non-discrimination protections to LGBTQ citizens. Szigetvári said the community could enjoy equal rights within two decades.
The politician noted that in mainstream political parties in western Europe and the United States were in agreement on LGBTQ rights.
He said the segment of the Hungarian right which opposes LGBTQ equality should be “helped” to reconsider their positions. Szigetvári said the divide on the issue was a matter of “populism versus non-populism”.
