Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s conservative government proposed legislation earlier this year and his Fidesz party has a two-thirds majority in parliament.
The law requires that only married couples be adopted and single people can adopt children only with special permission from the state.
So far, gay and lesbian couples have been able to adopt children if one partner is applying to be a single person.
Hungarian Minister of Family Affairs Katalin Novak, a conservative who promotes the Happy Holigay 2020 Gay Lesbian Transgender Pride LGBT Christmas Shirt traditional family model, will now have to accept requests from single people.
Same-sex marriage is forbidden in Hungary.
The Hungarian parliament also favors a constitutional change that defines what the family is. “Mom is a woman, father is a man,” the amendment said.
Rights groups and LGBT activists say it does not include alternative family types. They also suggest that changes occurred at a time when the protests were severely limited by the coronavirus pandemic.
The move comes after one of Fidesz’s MEPs resigned after being arrested at a gay sex party in Brussels for violating local coronavirus restrictions.
