Scores join Budapest Pride March to protest controversial anti-LGBTQ+ law
Thousands of Hungarians marched in Budapest’s biggest Pride parade on Saturday (July 24).
Demonstrators took to the streets amid tension in the country, sparked by a series of policies enacted by Prime Minister Viktor Orban, targeting the LGBTQ+ community.
An “anti-pedophilia” law was adopted by Parliament last month. It bans materials promoting homosexuality and gender change in Hungarian schools.
The European Commission has recently started legal action against the Hungarian Government. Prime Minister Orban is now planning to hold a referendum.
