RB Leipzig goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi has clearly positioned himself against homophobia in his home country Hungary. The 30-year-old criticized with one Facebook post the law passed at the end of December on Tuesday, according to which homosexual couples are not allowed to adopt children.
“Everyone has the right to equality,” wrote the goalkeeper: “Every child has the right to grow up in a happy family – no matter how many people it consists of, what skin color you have, who you love or what it is believed.”
Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s government has been causing a stir for years with its anti-LGBTQ policies.
Gulacsi emphasized that during his time abroad he had “met many different people with different nationalities, different religions or cultures and philosophies of life”.
