Budapest Pride set for August

The Budapest Pride Parade can be held without restrictions this year, organisers reported on Facebook after consulting with police.

Police immediately agreed to the request to stage the event on August 22. Originally, the parade was scheduled for July 5, but it was postponed to the end of August because of the epidemic.

The event this year will not pass without criticism: Szent Korona Rádió and the Nemzeti Jogvédő Szolgálat have filed a police complaint because the organisers chose the crown of St. István as the logo for the event this year.
