The route of the 26th Budapest Pride March: Madách Imre Square - Astoria - Kálvin Square - Fővám Square - Szabadság Bridge- Szent Gellért Quay - Döbrentei Square - Tabán
We’ve been through a very difficult time. Because of the coronavirus epidemic we could not protest for our rights, and we could not meet our family or friends, our recreation opportunities were significantly limited, and many people lost their jobs and livelihoods. The LGBTQ community was particularly plagued by the pandemic: those who had been only hired for unannounced work, those who had to move out of dormitory, or could no longer pay the rent, they were not protected by anything. The epidemic has isolated many LGBTQ people from the supportive groups and environment, and their chosen family. Many of us may have felt left alone. Slowly, it seems to be the end of this crisis.
However, there is no vaccine for everything, and not everyone has been forgotten: in the shadow of the pandemic, taking advantage of its extraordinary rights, the government has continued its infamous, exclusionary, stigmatizing campaign against the LGBTQ community. While their media forwarded their inciting messages, they used their legal instruments to prevent single-parent adoption, and name and gender change.
The time has come to claim our future back! We should show them that we won’t give up, we won’t accept that LGBTQ people are treated like second grade citizens. We have to stand up for a diverse, open, inclusive society. Let’s support each other in these difficult times! Let’s meet on July 24, Saturday, from 2:00 p.m.
The gathering starts at 2:00 p.m., the March departs at 3:00 p.m., and we finish the program at 8:00 p.m. After the March, we’re looking forward to see you at Hungary's largest LGBTQ party at the Rainbow Party in Budapest Park.
The rules described in the rules of the house are applied to the entire area and duration of the March.
