English Lewis Hamilton, multiple champion of F1, took advantage of the arrival of the highest category to Hungary, where the specialty will play this weekend the eleventh date of its 2021 tournament to affirm that the anti LGTB law adopted by the Hungarian government is "Unacceptable, cowardly and out of place."
The seven-time world champion indicated his position in a message on Instagram: “Before the Grand Prix this weekend I want to show my support to all those affected by the government anti-LGTB law. It is unacceptable, cowardly and out of place for the people who exercise power to propose such a law ”.
The Mercedes driver, a longtime activist against all kinds of discrimination, added that "Everyone deserves to have the freedom to decide to be oneself, love those who love or choose to identify in any way."
"I urge the Hungarian people to vote in the next referendum to protect the rights of the LGTB community, which needs our support more than ever"Hamilton added before ruling that "Love will always triumph."
The Hungarian Prime Minister, Viktor Orban, announced a referendum on this law, which is opposed by the European Commission.
Adopted on June 15, the law originally intended to fight pedophilia, but prohibits, among other things, any allusion to homosexuality and sex change in front of minors.
