This event is postponed because of personal reasons, it will take place in June during the Budapest Pride!

In the context of the LGBT History Month in Hungary on February 14th we will debate together about different topics connected to LGBT Pride Parades. Short presentations will also be hold, one of these is about the history and development of Dutch Gay Pride Parades from the end of the 70-ties till now.

Some questions we would like to talk about: Why do we attend the Parades? Which goals have been achieved, or not, and how do we want to continue, in which direction? Do we still need the Parades at all? And if we think we do, would large companies and commercial organizations be allowed to sponsor and actively participate in the Parades? Even if they thereby get a platform to promote their products and services like, for example, at the Amsterdam Canal Parade?

Hungarian and non-Hungarian, feel free to come and share your ideas and opinions with us! Let us know by facebook if you will join the debate. Free entry.

And, do you want to share your personal history with the Parades in your country this evening? Would you like to hold a short presentation? Let us know by e-mail to Tom:
