The Hungarian Equal Treatment Authority has issued its first decision in a sexual orientation discrimination case, fining a dance studio 200,000 forints ($914) for denying membership to an openly gay man.
The ETA was created in 2005 following passage of the Act on Equal Treatment and Promotion of Equal Opportunities, which bans anti-gay discrimination in employment, education, housing, health care, social security and access to goods and services.
The studio has an opportunity to appeal the decision.
