We have very good news for you! From June 14, the restrictions on gatherings will finally be lifted giving the long-awaited Budapest Pride March a green light. So on Saturday, July 24th, we can be together again and act together for the LGBTQ community! Come and claim our future back together!
There is an even greater need now than before to show that we are not afraid and we will not give up! We are many, and we are strong! In the recent years, the government and its propaganda media have launched an unprecedented attack on the LGBTQ community in Hungary. Week after week, more and more exclusionary messages and declarations were made by responsible government actors, and during the devastating pandemic, amendments were made to take advantage of the emergency to make it impossible to adopt as a single parent (including those in same-sex legal and intersex relationships), and for the transgender people to change their gender and name as well.
At this year’s March, we also put great emphasis on protecting the environment: we consider it important not just to respect each other, but the boundaries and needs of the environment too. The green movement and human rights issues are intertwined: the crises that accompany a climate catastrophe, like the epidemic, will now be used by the Hungarian government, by various authoritarian regimes to restrict human rights
We have seen where this leads: a constitutional amendment stating that the mother is a woman, the father is a man, adoption is difficult, and that gender and name change is prohibited. It leads to the incitement to hatred against civil, LGBTQ, refugee, immigrant, Roma, homeless people, and other minorities, and to the recapitalisation of the friendly client parties to the detriment of those in need.
Let's meet on July 24 from 2 pm in Madách Square and let us express our dissatisfaction! Stand up for the LGBTQ community and for ourself! Let's claim our future back together!
The route of the 26th Budapest Pride March: Madách Imre tér - Astoria - Kálvin tér - Fővám tér - Szabadság híd - Szent Gellért rakpart - Döbrentei tér - Tabán
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 meeting you at Hungary's largest LGBTQ party at the Rainbow Party in Budapest Park.
Would you come with your friends, co-workers, acquitances?
