The European Union’s chief executive on Wednesday threatened legal action against Hungary for legislation that restricts young people’s access to information about LGBT+ issues.

Last week, the Hungarian parliament approved the controversial bill, which has to be signed by the president to take effect.

“This Hungarian bill is a shame,” European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said in a news conference. Hungary’s right-wing Prime Minister Viktor Orban said in an interview with German news agency dpa that the bill was aimed at protecting children.

Orban has canceled a trip to Munich for his country’s match against Germany in the European football championship, German news agency dpa reported on Wednesday.

Munich city councilors had put forward a motion to have the stadium illuminated in rainbow colors after Hungarian lawmakers passed an anti-LGBT+ law. But the European football’s governing body, UEFA, declined Munich’s request.
