After passing a “gay propaganda” ban in June, the government has back-tracked.

Towleroad.com reports:

Last June Moldova passed a law banning the promotion of “relationships than those linked to marriage and the family” to children, a bit of legislation that was strongly supported and promoted by the Orthodox Church. However, the country is trying to secure membership in the European Union and lawmakers figured that following in the footsteps of Russia was probably not the best method to achieve that goal. Yesterday, the Moldovan government overturned the ban of promoting homosexuality to minors.

Sometimes international pressure does work.
