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.

Banning the Pride march would only exacerbate the social marginalization of this community.
A campaign against this prohibition was launched and here its video:
