Police Refused To Grant Permission For Budapest Gay Pride March

Written by

The police of Budapest refuses the Gay Pride, which is part of the Budapest Pride Film and Cultural Festival, is organized in the city.

The Pride was announced for July 7th but once again the police vetoed it. The organizaters filed a petition and hope the Budapest Metropolitan Court will repeal to the decision of the police.

As reports the Rainbow Mission Foundation (SZMA), the last two years have seen democracy, human rights, and the rule of law threatened in Hungary, and through its actions, the government has infringed upon the rights of many groups. The Basic Law, passed in April 2011 and in effect since the beginning of this year, the “family protection” law voted on last December, and the Hungarian Society for the Science of the Family founded in February all severely violate the rights of LGBTQ people. Banning the Pride march would only exacerbate the social marginalization of this community.

A campaign against this prohibition was launched and here its video:
