The fierce debate over rainbow lighting
The politician’s refusal comes after heated discussions about the lighting of the Munich EM square.
UEFA rejected a request from Munich Mayor Dieter Reiter. He wanted the stadium to sparkle with the colors of the rainbow.
The reason for this desire is a recently passed law in Hungary that prevents young people from obtaining information on homosexual and transgender topics. Orbán is a big advocate of the law.
However, since UEFA has banned colored lighting, stadiums across Germany and, among other things, a wind turbine next to the Allianz Arena will be lit in the evening.
