HUNGARY – Speaking to former Czech Head of Delegation Jan Bors, Lőrinc Bubnó, former Head of Delegation for Hungary explained things regarding his country’s withdrawal from the Eurovision Song Contest.
Although he claims he has no inside information from the broadcaster he believes that his country withdrawal has to do with two reasons:
“One being money, participating in Eurovision costs a lot of money, we are not a very rich country, if we have to cut something and it’s not good for the countries image, then it was pretty sure they would cut this.
On the other hand, Hungarians still need some time to be prepared for Western Europe and the LGBTQ+ community and how to accept people.”
It is no secret that the broadcaster (and probably the government) don’t wanna risk the anti-homosexual sentiment of the Hungarian elders as it features a lot in the contest.
