22 months after the suspension of gender and name change requests, the government would now prohibit legal gender recognition of transgender people. Late in the evening on March 31, 2020, the Hungarian Deputy Prime Minister filed an omnibus bill, which would make legal gender recognition in Hungary impossible.
We rescheduled the Budapest Pride Festival and March from June to August: the Festival will last 10 days, beginning with the opening night on Friday, August 14. The March and Rainbow Party will fall on Saturday, August 22, and the festival will end on Sunday, August 23.
Similarly to the previous years we encourage the participants to join the march with a vehicle, to gain more visibility. We accept the application of informal groups, civil organisations and companies.
